    One week after being diagnosed with COVID-19, US President Donald Trump said Thursday he is feeling “perfect” and is ready to resume campaign rallies. Trump’s doctor, Sean Conley, said in a statement released Thursday evening that Trump had “completed his course of therapy” for COVID-19 and would be able to safely “return to public engagements” on Saturday. “Saturday will be day 10 since Thursday’s diagnosis, and based on the trajectory of advanced diagnostics the team has been conducting, I fully anticipate the president’s safe return to public engagements at that time,” Conley said. On Thursday night, Trump told Fox News he will likely take a coronavirus test on Friday, and will try to hold a campaign rally on Saturday, “if we have enough time to put it together.” With less than one month to go until the US presidential election, the president has not appeared in public — other than in the Fox interview and videos produced by the White House — since he returned Monday from Walter Reed military hospital. Trump’s physicians have not provided the media with a substantive update on the president’s health since Monday afternoon. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends a 10-day isolation period after the onset of COVID-19 symptoms, which for Trump was October 1. The White House, however, has not shared when Trump last tested negative for the virus, which would help determine exactly when he was infected. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the US government’s top infectious disease expert, said two negative PCR lab tests 24 hours apart are necessary to determine if someone is still contagious.
