Should I use present or past tense with this sentence?

Postby nhatvan » Mon Mar 03, 2014 6:41 pm

Hi,
I would be very grateful for your advice whether I should use the present tense or past tense with this sentence. If we have just spoken to a woman and then we need to write a report about what she said. Should I say "She says she is doing well." or "she said she is doing well."

Thanks,

Nhatvan
