Dr Sean Conley made the comments as he gave an update on Mr Trump’s condition as he is being treated at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre near Washington DC. He said the president was “doing well” and only suffering mild symptoms on Thursday night.

But by late Friday morning Mr Trump had a high temperature and his oxygen levels were dipping, Dr Conley said.

He added that he was “concerned for possible rapid progression of the illness”.

Mr Trump was moved to hospital later that day.

In his update today, Dr Conley said Mr Trump’s condition is improving and he could return to the White House as early as Monday.

“You don’t know over the next period of a few days, I guess that’s the real test.

“So we’ll be seeing what happens over those next couple of days.”

The clip followed conflicting reports over his condition.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who was admitted to intensive care with coronavirus in April, has said he is sure Mr Trump is “going to be fine”.

He said the president is being given the “best” medical care available.

Mr Johnson told the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show: “I’m sure that President Trump is going to be fine, he has got the best possible care.

“The most important thing to do is follow his doctors’ advice.”

Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage, an ally of Mr Trump’s, said he thought the president looked “pretty robust”.

Speaking to Sky News’ Sophy Ridge On Sunday, he said: “He has got Covid-19, he has been ill, he’s been put into hospital, he’s been put on oxygen.

“But considering all of that, he looked pretty robust.”

Mr Farage said it remains to be seen whether the president’s case of the virus will “bite hard or not”

He added: “He doesn’t drink, he doesn’t smoke, he’s carrying a few extra pounds but he is generally in pretty robust health, so my guess would be he is going to be OK.”
