October 4, 2020: US President Donald Trump said in a video released on Saturday night that he was feeling "much better" in his battle against the coronavirus - but the next few days would be "the real test."

"I came here, wasn't feeling so well," said Trump, who is being treated at Walter Reed military medical center near Washington following his Covid-19 diagnosis.

"I feel much better now, we're working hard to get me all the way back."

Trump administration official has said that the next 48 hours will be “critical in terms of his care,” and added, contrary to the rosy picture conveyed by the president’s physician, “we’re still not on a clear path to a full recovery.”

The president was put on supplemental oxygen on Friday after his oxygen levels dropped, which in part prompted the decision to airlift him to the Walter Reed Military Medical Center in Bethesda, in the adjoining state of Maryland.
