The White House has officially announced that President Joe Biden tested positive for COVID-19 this morning, Thursday, July 21, 2022.
He is fully vaccinated, has received two booster shots, and has been experiencing moderate symptoms as a result of a positive COVID-19 test, the statement claims.
A letter officially published from Dr. Kevin O’Connor, Physician to the President state that;
“This morning as part of the routine screening program for the President, the SARS-Co V-2 virus was detected by antigen testing. This result was subsequently confirmed via Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) testing.
On questioning, President Biden is currently experiencing mild symptoms, mostly rhinorrhea (or “runny nose”) and fatigue, with an occasional dry cough, which started yesterday evening. Given that he meets U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) criteria for PAXLOVID, I have recommended initiating such treatment.
The President is fully vaccinated and twice-boosted, so I anticipate that he will respond favorably, as most maximally protected patients do. Early use of PAXLOVID in this case provides additional protection against severe disease. He will isolate in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations. I keep your office updated with any charges in his condition or treatment plan.”
