President Biden tested positive for Covid-19 and has fewer symptoms

President Biden tested positive for Covid-19 and has fewer symptoms

July 25, 2022: -On Thursday, President Joe Biden delivered tests positive for Covid-19, the White House said.

The 79-year-old president, who is completed vaccinated and has received two booster shots of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid vaccine, is sharing “very mild symptoms,” press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in a statement. Biden earlier tested negative on Tuesday.

On Thursday, Biden’s official Twitter statement shared a photo of the president seated at a desk and grinning, along with the assurance, “Folks, I’m doing great. Thanks for your concern.”

Shortly after, the account published a video of Biden saying from a White House balcony. “Keep the trust, and it’s going to be okay,” he said.

The press secretary stated that Biden has begun taking Pfizer’s Paxlovid, an antiviral pill that can lower the risk of hospitalization for people who test positive for Covid.

The president’s signs include a dry cough, runny nose, and fatigue, White House physician Kevin O’Connor said in a memorandum. Those symptoms started Wednesday evening, O’Connor said.

“I anticipate that he will respond favorably, as most maximally protected patients do,” the physician added.

First lady Jill Biden told reporters in Detroit on Thursday morning that her husband is “regarding good.”

“I talked to him just some minutes ago; he’s doing fine,” Jill Biden said. On Tuesday, her office said she is considered in close contact with the president but tested negative for Covid and is following CDC social distancing guidelines.

Jean-Pierre said Biden would work in solitude until he tested negative for the virus. He will hold all of his expected meetings remotely Thursday.

Jean-Pierre will hold a press briefing at 2 p.m. ET, accompanied by White House Covid response coordinator Dr. Ashish Jha.

On Wednesday, Biden observed an event in Massachusetts to announce policies to combat climate change. Lawmakers and administration officers in attendance included Massachusetts Democratic Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Ed Markey, whether envoy John Kerry or climate advisor Gina McCarthy.

It was unclear if any of those officers were supposed to close contact with Biden under CDC guidelines.
