Kellyann Conway has tested positive
The Amy Coney Barrett announcement seems to have been a potential superspreader event. Personally I'm pretty cool with the pick because she's someone who would go along with more liberal justices on topics like the death penalty. I don't know that it's right that this decision needs to be made so close to an election after a precident was set 4 years ago, but I'm totally fine with her as the next person to be appointed to the court.

That being said, the way this is going I kinda wonder if God is trying to intervene here. The President could possibly have a serious case and enough republican senators are either sick from it or in quarantine that the votes aren't there now. With contact tracing and the possibility other senators could get sick from this, it may be weeks before the votes are there again. If the Republicans lose the white house and senate, pushing her through during the lame duck session would mean all out war from the democrats next year. Maybe a higher power is trying to tell us to cool our jets on knee jerk reactions right now.

Apparently there are 2 different opinions. The dr treating him and someone familiar with the situation.

President Trump is “doing very well” and has no difficulty breathing, his medical team said Saturday -- the morning after he was transferred to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
White House physician Dr. Sean Conley and other members of the medical team briefed reporters on Trump’s condition. Conley said they were “extremely happy with the progress” Trump is making.
TRUMP TRANSFERRED TO WALTER REED 'OUT OF AN ABUNDANCE OF CAUTION' AFTER TESTING POSITIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS
"This morning, the president is doing very well," he said.
However, moments after the press conference, a source familiar with the president's health gave a more cautious diagnosis to the press pool.
"The President's vitals over last 24 hours were very concerning and the next 48 hours will be critical in terms of his care," the source said. "We are still not on a clear path to a full recovery."
TRUMP TESTS POSITIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS: HERE'S WHO ELSE IS POSITIVE
Dr. Sean Dooley said that cardiac, kidney and liver functions are all normal, that Trump is not on oxygen and is not having any difficulty breathing or walking.
He quoted Trump as saying: “I feel like I could walk out of here today.” Separately, Dr. Brian Garibaldi described Trump as being in "such great spirits."
The doctors also said Trump had been fever-free for 24 hours, and that symptoms of a nasal cough and fatigue had all “resolved.” However, they did not give a date for when Trump may leave the center.

Trump announced Friday morning that he and first lady Melania Trump had tested positive. A number of White House and campaign officials have also tested positive – including senior White House adviser Hope Hicks and Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien. On Saturday former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who was on Trump's prep team for Tuesday's presidential debate, announced that he had tested positive.
Trump was moved to the medical center later Friday in what was described as a precautionary measure after suffering symptoms the White House described as “mild.” Mrs. Trump, meanwhile, was described as "doing great" on Saturday by the medical team.
On Friday afternoon, Conley said Trump had received an antibody cocktail, as well as zinc, Vitamin D, famotidine, melatonin and a daily aspirin. He later said Trump was taking a five day course of Remdesivir.
Trump on Friday night tweeted that his treatment was "going well, I think!"

Those aren't mutually exclusive. He could have been doing poorly yesterday and the combined boost of regerons antibodies and remdesivir may have expedited his recovery. He started the antibodies Thursday and remdesivir more recently. Preliminary data on similar antibodies have been extremely promising. Anticipating the direction this will go next, we haven't invested much in manufacturing them at risk (i.e., before efficacy and safety data are available, presuming there's a market for them) and we almost certainly can't make them available on a large scale for several months.
