US President Joe Biden found out on Thursday that he’s positive for COVID. There seems to be no reason to worry about his health despite the fact that Biden is 79 years old. As a result of the infection, the US President is only going through mild symptoms, such as fatigue, runny nose, and a dry cough. Furthermore, he has been fully vaccinated and “boosted,” which is another strong reason to hope for his recovery, as CBS NEWS reveals.

Joe Biden already started treatment with Paxlovid, Pfizer’s antiviral drug for the coronavirus. An antigen test is what first revealed the infection with COVID, while a PCR test confirmed it. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre revealed the information, and she also added that the US President would continue his work from isolation at the White House.

Mr. Biden posted a video via Twitter where he spoke about his condition and thanked those who had been concerned about his health. The US President brings some good news, saying:

Hey folks, I guess you heard — this morning I tested positive for COVID. But I’ve been double vaccinated and double boosted. Symptoms are mild,

And I really appreciate your inquiries and concerns. But I’m doing well, getting a lot of work done, going to continue to get it done. And in the meantime, thanks for your concern and keep the faith. It’s going to be OK.

Unfortunately, COVID seems to be back in business in the US and many parts of Europe, as the BA.5 Omicron subvariant is once again causing an increase in cases

For instance, the USA reported over 100,000 infections with COVID yesterday, July 21, according to worldometers.info. On the same day, France, Germany, and Italy reported tens of thousands of infections, as the same source reveals.
