“I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good!” the president tweeted on Monday afternoon.
Trump’s physician, Dr. Sean Conley, confirmed the news later at a press conference.
Conley said that Trump met the requirements to be discharged Sunday afternoon, and that his recovery will continue to be overseen 24 hours a day by medical staff.
“Right now there’s nothing that’s being done upstairs here that we can’t safely conduct at home,” Conley said.
Conley refused to comment on how the president will adequately quarantine while at the White House, which continues to be staffed.
Trump has been in hospital for several days, after revealing that he was diagnosed with COVID-19 late Thursday night. First Lady Melania Trump, along with several other key White House administration members, have also tested positive for the virus.
Trump was last seen publicly Sunday as he rode in a vehicle with Secret Service members and waved to his supporters.
Trump has also continued to be vocal on Twitter while in hospital at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
On Twitter, the president also urged Americans to not be afraid of the coronavirus and carry on with their lives.
“We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge,” he said.
The virus has killed more than 209,000 Americans.
