Trump’s treatments suggest a more serious COVID-19 case than reported

CLOSE

President Trump’s doctor said Trump is not currently on oxygen, but would not say whether he ever received oxygen since his COVID-19 diagnosis.

USA TODAY

President Donald Trump is receiving oxygen and has begun a course of steroids. Doctors said patients for whom that’s the case often spend several days in the hospital in the best-case scenario.

At a news conference Sunday morning, one of the physicians treating the president said he had begun a course of the steroid dexamethasone Saturday after a drop in his oxygen levels. The president will receive that “for the time being,” Dr. Sean Dooley said. 

The president’s physician, Navy Cmdr. Sean Conley, said that if Trump continued to look and feel well, “our hope is that we can plan for a discharge as early as (Monday) to the White House, where he can continue his treatment course.”

That would not be the typical

Retired Marine Corps Lt. Col. Thomas Faleskie holds a box containing the medals next to Det. Frank Corona, who helped organize the plan to replace them.

For nearly 25 years, Thomas Faleskie served in the United States Marine Corps before retiring with the rank of lieutenant colonel. During that time he served in Vietnam and was awarded with several medals, including the National Defense Service Medal and Vietnam Service Medal.

But a burglary at the veteran’s home last year resulted in the loss of tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of items — including his military medals, ribbons and pilot’s wings, according to the sheriff’s office in Spotsylvania, Virginia.

The loss hit home with Det. Frank Corona, who worked on the case, because he also served in the Marines. Corona quickly identified suspects in the burglary cases and recovered several of the stolen items at

This Kitchen Makeover Makes the Case for Bold Color Blocking

AFTER: The mint green wall balances the deep tones of the teal cabinets and the yellow shine of the brass backsplash and hardware.

So Camille and Carole set about reorganizing the space, focusing on relocating elements and circulation so that their client’s living-dining-cooking spaces flowed better and centered around an unexpected multifunctional feature: “two back-to-back benches, one for the dining table and the other for the living room,” says Camille.

To further delineate this separation, they placed a partition with clear glass and a black frame that stretched from the top of the bench to the underside of the ceiling. The glass partition was a specific request from the client, drawing the eye up to the high ceiling while still maintaining views across the
