United States President Donald Trump is making sufficient recovery from the COVID-19 infection and returned to the White House from hospital.
The recovery comes three days after he was diagnosed with the dreaded virus.
Trump walked out of the Walter Reed Military Medical Centre in Bethesda, Maryland at 6:38 pm (11:38pm Nigerian time); where he was treated. He was spotted wearing a black mask and surrounded by Secret Service operatives.
However, the US President disappointed the hordes of journalists that had gathered to see him. He blatantly refused to answer questions from newsmen, many of who could be heard shouting questions at him. Trump was conveyed in a motorcade to a helipad from where the presidential helicopter, Marine One; flew him on a short trip back to the White House.
At the White House, he removed his mask and paused for a brief photo op; during which he waved to the cameras before entering his official residence.

Four hours earlier, Trump had made a Twitter post in which he, again, downplayed the impact of the virus. In addition, he said he was feeling better than he did 20 years ago.
“I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of COVID. Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs and knowledge.
“I feel better than I did 20 years ago!,” Trump had tweeted.
Meanwhile, the president’s physician, Sean Conley had expressed support for his move to the White House. However, he revealed that Trump was not fully clear of the COVID-19 infection. He added that the President was on uncharted territory in terms of his treatment.
