On Thursday, the White House revealed that President Joe Biden has tested positive for COVID-19.
The White House spokesman states that the president has started taking Paxlovid, Pfizer’s COVID-19 antiviral medication. Biden proves to be having minor symptoms.
His condition has become worrying given that he is the oldest of the presidents ever sworn in, in the United States. Scenarios show during the Epidemic that the elderly have proven to have less immunity to fight against COVID-19 than the young, leading them to have severe conditions in case contracted.
Biden is to isolate himself at the White House following the CDC recommendations. During that time, the President will continue to perform his tasks. He will participate in his scheduled meetings at the White House this morning by phone and Zoom from his home, according to the statement. “He spoke with members of the White House by phone this morning .”
“PresidentJoe Biden received two booster shots and is completely protected against COVID-19.
