On October 1, 2020, Health Secretary Alex Azar received a call with an urgent request: Can he help someone in the White House with an experimental Covid-19 treatment drug, called monoclonal antibodies?

The drug was then in clinical trials and not yet available to the public.

Azar was not told who the White House asked for the medicine for, but he later deduced it.

Trump entered the hospital

Trump boarded a helicopter at the White House to go to the hospital on October 2, 2020 after being infected with nCoV.

Soon after, FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn received a request from a top White House official about another case, this time with more urgency: Could he ask the FDA to authorize medical use?

The White House wants Hahn to give the green light within hours.

`No, we can’t do that,` Hahn said.

When Hahn learned that the White House had requested medicine for the President, he was surprised.

As it does with all other emergency use applications, the FDA makes a decision within 24 hours.

The 5-day journey from when Trump showed symptoms of nCoV infection until he was discharged from the hospital and returned to the White House in October 2020 is told in the book `Nightmare Scenario: The Trump administration’s response to the pandemic`.

Trump began having Covid-19 symptoms on October 1, 2020 and announced on Twitter a day later that he and the first lady tested positive for nCoV.

Doctors gave Trump an 8-gram dose of two monoclonal antibodies intravenously.

Usually, doctors will space the time between medications to see how the patient reacts.

Trump’s condition appeared to have stabilized somewhat that day, but doctors feared he might need a ventilator and decided to admit him to Walter Reed hospital.

Even Trump’s closest aides are unclear about his health status.

When an assistant lined up to be tested for nCoV, she saw Conley quickly run out of the office with a worried look on her face.

Trump did not want to be hospitalized, but aides gave him two options: He could go to the hospital on October 2, while he could still walk on his own, or if he waited longer, cameras could take pictures.

Trump’s condition worsened on the morning of October 3, 2020.

During Trump’s stay at the hospital, his doctors consulted with medical experts in the White House’s Covid-19 task force.

At least two of the people briefed on Trump’s health that weekend said he was seriously ill and feared he would not survive.

On the afternoon of October 3, Trump’s condition began to improve.

Throughout October 3, Trump continuously made phone calls to gauge how the public received his hospitalization.

`Like magic,` Trump told campaign adviser Jason Miller in a call from the hospital.

That weekend, Redfield prayed that the President would recover.

At Walter Reed hospital, Trump insisted on being discharged early and called Conley.

Finally, Trump boarded the Marine One helicopter and landed on the South Lawn of the White House on the evening of October 5, 2020.

Trump took off his mask while standing on the White House balcony on October 5, 2020.

But Trump didn’t go inside right away.

Redfield watches live TV from home.

But Trump is not like that.

At that moment, Redfield knew it was over.
