Meadows says Trump’s blood oxygen level was dangerously low when he had COVID-19

Former President Trump‘s blood oxygen level fell to a dangerous low after he tested positive for COVID-19 last year, according to a new book by former chief of staff Mark Meadows.

In his upcoming book, “The Chief’s Chief,” Meadows offers a detailed account of Trump’s bout with COVID-19, according to The New York Times.

Meadows writes that Trump recorded a blood oxygen level of about 86 percent, about 10 points below normal, just hours after announcing on Twitter that he had tested positive for the virus last Oct 2.

“That morning, Dr. Conley pulled me aside and delivered some bad news,” Meadows said of Sean Conley, who led the White House medical team, per the Times. “Although the president’s condition had improved slightly overnight, his oxygen levels had now dipped down to about 86 percent and could be trending lower, a dangerously low level for someone his age.”
