Totally Boosted Biden Has COVID

No one is more vaccinated and boosted than President Joe Biden, but yet he tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday morning, according to the White House. 

Administration officials said that the 79-year-old president is only experiencing “very mild symptoms” and is fully vaccinated and boosted with four shots of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine.

It looks as though he was positive for the virus while on his trip to Massachusetts on Wednesday. He was seen not wearing a mask in public during that trip and he traveled to Massachusetts officials to deliver a speech warning of the dangers of climate change. 

The president spent time shaking hands and greeting officials and supporters after his speech.

Massachusetts Sens. Ed Markey and Elizabeth Warren attended the event as well as Biden’s climate czar John Kerry and his climate advisor Gina McCarthy.

The trip just prior to this one was in the Middle East where he visited Saudi Arabia and Israeli officials. He personally greeted them and did not wear a mask.

And on Tuesday, he met with the first lady of Ukraine, Olena Zelenska at the White House.

Dr. Kevin O’Connor, the White House doctor, wrote in a letter that Biden had a runny nose, a cough, and is experiencing fatigue. 

The president will undergo treatment of the antiviral therapy treatment Paxlovid, according to the White House.

His administration said that he would continue to hold meetings at the White House through phone and video conferencing, even though he is ill.

“Consistent with CDC guidelines, he will isolate at the White House and will continue to carry out all of his duties fully during that time,” the White House said.

The president will “continue to work in isolation until he tests negative” the White House said.

Just hours earlier, Joe Biden yelled at Americans who remained unvaccinated for the coronavirus.

“They’ve got a problem,” he told reporters.

“It’s not in their interest or the public’s interest not to get vaccinated,” he continued. “We have the capacity to control it. They should get vaccinated now.”
