U.S. President Donald Trump has arrived back at the White House and posed on the balcony of the presidential residence after 72 hours in the hospital being treated for coronavirus.
Mr. Trump did not answer questions from reporters as he strode, without aid, from the hospital to his vehicle outside Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in a suburb of Washington, D.C.
Once back at the White House, he took off the mask he had been wearing on his face and posed for photographs on the balcony of the White House.
Earlier, Mr. Trump's primary physician, Dr. Sean Conley, told reporters, “Though he may not entirely be out of the woods yet, the team and I agree that all our evaluations, and most importantly his clinical status, support his return home.”
The White House has medical facilities and practitioners to monitor the President around the clock. Conley said there was nothing being done at Walter Reed that could not be done at the White House instead.

The World Health Organization says roughly one in ten people around the world may have been infected with the coronavirus.
