11:07 am
a video with defiant comments that have stoked criticism from medical experts meanwhile his physician says he'll receive further care over the coming days. it was a determined donald trump wearing a mask who emerged on to the steps of the hospital for days after he shocked the world by announcing he and 1st lady millennia had tested positive for covert 19 trump was back. after the short helicopter flight to washington the president crossed the white house lawn and strode up the staircase made a point of removing his mosque offering a salute to the departing ecru and there was encourage meant for the other 7 and a half 1000000 americans who've been infected by the virus. let it dominate you don't be afraid of it you're going to beat it we have the best medical equipment we
11:08 am
have the best medicines all developed recently and you going to beat it i went i didn't feel so good and 2 days ago i could have left 2 days ago 2 days ago felt great like better than i have in a long time i said just recently better than 20 years ago don't let it dominate don't let it take over your lives. democratic challenger joe biden was asked on television where they he agreed the president had to pass some responsibility for contract the virus anybody who can track the virus for centuries say rostow social justice who doesn't matter. i think is is is responsible those words will not be enough to deter the president in one of his many tweets on a day of high drama trump pledge to be back on the campaign trail soon.
11:09 am
let's get more now law from washington but from san francisco we're joined by professor and m. de peter he's an infectious disease specialist has been assessing the president's condition and joins us from the university of california there thanks so much for joining us dr the president's physician is saying that trump is doing better but that he's quote not out of the woods yet what's your assessment of his condition right now. well brian thanks for having me on i think that the president may be in a honeymoon phase as i call it of course in 1000 disease in the 1st phase it's means of viral phase before the inflammatory phase sets and we look for a warning sign around a 7 o b 10 when people can actually do a lot worse require a lot more oxygen and you may get better or at that point may get a lot worse and that'll be around the weekend ok so that is
11:10 am
a perspective for the president and somewhat hopeful of if he does get better but before he left the hospital tweeted to his audience that people should not be afraid of covert 19 is that the right message for a president to put out in the condition he's in right now. i'm worried about that message brian we've had more than 200000 deaths in this country a lot of this parties and brought them black folks and people who don't have as many opportunities to get to the. to get easy diagnostics that they have and i think it really sends the wrong message i mean i think it should be one of unity it should be one of respect for the virus you know i still continue to be humbled by the virus every day given by home the pre-n. manifestations of the disease i see and folks ok with that in mind the president has indicated he wants to return to the campaign trail for more live events like ones we've seen in the past do you do you think that's advisable with what we know
11:11 am
right now about his condition. i would never tell a patient in this situation to go back to work immediately for several reasons 1st of all there's a need for a convalescence he needs to relax and recover and he's definitely have you pointed out not out of the woods yet the 2nd more important reason is that he's still potentially infectious you know the c.d.c. guidelines the united states for mild disease would not allow someone to be off of infection control for 10 days at least for a moderate or severe disease that's extended to 20 days so whatever criteria you look at the president is not ready to go out into the world unless there is a convincing test that his that he's not infectious anymore but that's not really a standard test because you need to do a culture of the virus dr thanks so much for that we're talking with the peterson
11:12 am
