White House physician Sean Conley said at a press conference early in the afternoon Saturday that Trump was doing “very well,” while also avoiding some questions about the president's diagnosis. 

A source familiar with the president’s health told reporters that the president’s vitals over the past 24 hours were “very concerning” and described the next 48 hours as “critical in terms of his care.” 

Conley also raised new questions when he said that the president was “72 hours” into his diagnosis. However, the White House reported Trump’s positive test in the early hours of Friday morning, which was less than 48 hours ago.

The new diagnoses of top officials comes as the coronavirus continues to spread throughout the country, with more than 7.3 million confirmed cases and 208,118 recorded deaths as of Saturday. 

Tom Inglesby, director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, is set to appear on “Fox News Sunday.” In August, Inglesby raised questions on the progress of coronavirus vaccine testing, saying on NBC’s “Meet the Press” at the time that a 50 percent effective coronavirus vaccine would be “better than what we have now.” 

Trump’s diagnosis has also created more pressure on congressional leadership to pass a new coronavirus stimulus bill, with Trump tweeting Saturday afternoon, “OUR GREAT USA WANTS & NEEDS STIMULUS. WORK TOGETHER AND GET IT DONE. Thank you!”
