A Timeline of Trump’s Symptoms and Treatments

As President Trump continues to be treated at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, doctors and senior White House staff members have given conflicting updates about the president’s condition, treatments and when he learned he was infected with the coronavirus.

A timeline of events about the president’s illness is drawn from his tweets, news conferences, statements from the White House and reporting from The New York Times.

Mr. Trump and his team traveled to Minnesota for a rally that lasted about 45 minutes — about half the length of his typical campaign speeches.

During the event, one of Mr. Trump’s closest advisers, Hope Hicks, started to have symptoms related to the virus.

On the return trip, Mr. Trump slept as some of his advisers spoke about the condition of Ms. Hicks, who was isolated in the back of the plane.

News that Ms. Hicks tested positive for the virus came as Mr. Trump left the White House by helicopter around 1 p.m. for a fund-raiser at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J.

At the event, Mr. Trump appeared before hundreds of supporters, both indoors and outdoors. One person who saw the president there said he was in contact with about 100 people and appeared lethargic.

On a call with Iowa voters and in an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News, Mr. Trump sounded raspy.

Later that night, Mr. Trump and the first lady, Melania Trump, tested positive for the coronavirus, officials said.

The president had a mild cough, nasal congestion and fatigue.

Close to 1 a.m., Mr. Trump said on Twitter that he and the first lady had tested positive for the coronavirus.

Later in the morning, Mr. Trump had a high fever and his oxygen saturation levels dipped below 94 percent, Dr. Sean Conley, the White House physician, said.

The doctor recommended that Mr. Trump be given supplemental oxygen.

“He was fairly adamant that he didn’t need it,” Dr. Conley said. “He was not short of breath. He was tired, had the fever, but that was about it.”

After about a minute on two liters of supplemental oxygen, Mr. Trump’s saturation levels were back over 95 percent, Dr. Conley said. The president stayed on the supplemental oxygen for about an hour at the White House.

That evening, Mr. Trump was taken to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for a more thorough evaluation and monitoring.

Mr. Trump received an 8-gram dose of an experimental polyclonal antibody cocktail. He also took zinc, vitamin D, famotidine, melatonin and aspirin.

The president also was given his first dose of remdesivir, an antiviral drug that has an emergency approval from the Food and Drug Administration as a Covid-19 therapy.

Mr. Trump has mild heart disease, similar to many men in their 70s. He also takes a statin drug to treat high cholesterol and aspirin to prevent heart attacks. His health summary, released in June, showed that he crossed the line into obesity at 244 pounds.

Trump doctor says president ‘doing very well,’ reframes diagnosis timeline

Oct. 3 (UPI) — White House physician Dr. Sean Conley said Saturday that President Donald Trump “is doing very well” after treatment at Walter Reed hospital, but threw the timeline of his illness into question.

Conley and a team of several doctors from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center briefed the public on Trump’s condition and treatment outside the facility midday Saturday.

“This morning, the president is doing very well,” Conley said.

He said Trump experienced symptoms including a mild cough, nasal congestion and fatigue beginning Thursday, but that those conditions have since improved.

Conley said Trump’s been fever free for more than 24 hours, has been walking around and tending to some work.

“We remain cautiously optimistic, but he’s doing great,” he said.

Conley said Trump is “not on oxygen right now,” nor was he on Friday, but declined to clarify when reporters asked if Trump had ever been on oxygen to treat coronavirus.

“At this time, the team and I are extremely happy with the progress the president has made.

Though the doctors offered a positive outlook for the president’s condition, a source familiar with the president’s health offered a different picture to a White House pool reporter attending the news conference.

“The president’s vitals over the last 24 hours were very concerning and the next 48 hours will be critical in terms of his care. We’re still not on a clear path to a full recovery,” the source said, speaking on the condition of anonymity.

On Saturday afternoon, Trump tweeted praise for those caring for him at Walter Reed.

“Doctors, Nurses and ALL at the GREAT Walter Reed Medical Center, and others from likewise incredible institutions who have joined them, are AMAZING!!! Tremendous progress has been made over the last 6 months in fighting this PLAGUE. With their help, I am feeling well!,” he tweeted at 1:19 p.m.

Late Friday, Conley said doctors at the hospital administered remdesivir therapy to the president. Before Trump’s admittance to Walter Reed, he also was given an experimental antibody treatment called regeneron.

Comments at Saturday’s news conference about Trump’s diagnosis and the administration of the antibody treatment appeared to contradict the White House’s earlier reports about the timeline of the president’s illness.

Conley told reporters they were “72 hours into the diagnosis,” which would place his positive test about midday Wednesday. Trump tweeted the news just before 1 a.m. Eastern time Friday.

“Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!” Trump tweeted.

Additionally, one of the Walter Reed doctors on Trump’s medical team, Dr. Brian Garibaldi, said the president was given the antibody treatment “48 hours ago,” or midday Thursday.

Marine One transported Trump to the Bethesda hospital Friday evening for what White House officials said was likely to be a “few days.”Remdesivir, manufactured by Gilead Sciences under the brand name Vaklury, is an antiviral drug originally developed to treat hepatitis C, which was unsuccessful.

When do babies start holding up their heads? Timeline

Head control gives a baby more autonomy and more of a chance to explore the world on their own terms.

During the first month of life, most babies gain some head control and can briefly hold up their heads while lying on their bellies.

By the time a baby is 4 months old, they likely have significant head control and can hold their head steady without support for longer periods.

This article explores how a baby develops head control, how to help, and what precautions to take.

For a baby, controlling the movement of the head and neck requires average development, practice, and coordination.

However, every baby is different, and the timing of developmental stages naturally varies. Below, find a general timeline of head control.

Early head control

In the first weeks of life, babies begin responding more to their environments.

Some babies try to lift their heads or even hold them upright for short periods during this time. Others do not.

At 1 month, most babies bob their heads when they are held upright. They cannot comfortably hold up their heads without support.

During tummy time

By 2 months, most babies can lift their heads upright when they are lying on their bellies.

At first, this may only happen for a few seconds, but with practice, a baby can hold their head up for longer, moving it from side to side to take in interesting sights.

Some other head control milestones that may occur at this age include:

  • When lying on their back, a baby may be able to lift their head so it is aligned with their belly button.
  • Most of the time, the baby will position their head so that they are looking to one side or the other.
  • When someone helps the baby roll over, the baby may be able to move their head into the right position during the roll.
  • When raised into a sitting position, the baby will not be able to support their head — but they may be able to lift their head when they are reclined at about 15 degrees from a fully upright position.

By 3 months, most babies can lift their heads and upper bodies during tummy time. They may push up with their forearms so that they can look around.

In an upright position

At around 4 months, most babies can control their heads in an upright position. This may happen when raising the baby into a supported sitting position or when lifting the baby without supporting their head.

The baby may also move their head from side to side. Some other head control milestones at 4 months include:

  • When lying on their back, the baby should usually hold their head so they are looking straight up rather than pointing their face toward either side.
  • When rolling over with help, the baby may use their upper arms and legs to support their body. They may also begin rolling over on their own.
  • When lifted into a sitting position,
