WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump is free of fever and improving after being hospitalized with COVID-19 but is not yet out of danger, his physician, Dr. Sean Conley, said late on Saturday.

“He spent much of the afternoon conducting business, and has been up and moving about the medical suite without difficulty,” Conley said in a statement.
