The White House has explained that it will provide a daily bulletin on the president’s condition until he is negativized. Predecessor Donald Trump also contracted the virus in October 2020
Joe Biden tested positive for Covid this morning. White House sources say he is fully vaccinated and has developed “mild symptoms”. The president “has begun to take the Paxlovid. Following the guidelines of the CDC, he will be in solitary confinement in the White House and will continue to carry out his duties.” “This morning – it is explained in a note – he has been in telephone contact with his staff members and today will attend scheduled meetings via phone and zoom from his residence.”
The White House explained that “for excess of transparency” it will provide a daily bulletin on the conditions of the president until he is negative. Biden’s predecessor, Donald Trump, also contracted the virus in October 2020 when vaccines were not yet available and was treated with experimental drugs while staying in the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for three days.
Jill Biden, the First Lady, tested negative and will keep her work schedule. In these hours she is in Michigan.
