 Joe Biden he US President is suffering from “minor symptoms,” but he will continue to serve in his full capacity at the White House while isolating

President Joe Biden tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday, according to his administration, who added that the 79-year-old leader was having “minimal symptoms” but will continue to do his full duties while isolated at the White House.


Joe Biden was scheduled to go to Pennsylvania during the day, the latest in a series of excursions around the country as he attempts to boost dwindling Democratic hopes ahead of the November elections.


“He has been completely vaccinated and twice boosted and is having very modest symptoms,” the White House said in a statement, adding that Biden has started using Pfizer’s anti-COVID medication Paxlovid.

“He will isolate in the White House in accordance with CDC rules and will continue to carry out all of his duties fully during that time.”

Joe Biden is said to be in good overall health, but his age raises concerns about the impact of COVID.

Politically, Obama is at a difficult era of his presidency, facing bitter midterm elections for his Democratic Party in November, as well as dropping personal approval ratings.


According to a report issued Wednesday by Quinnipiac University in Connecticut, Biden’s popularity ratings have reached a new low, with only 31% of Americans pleased with the way he is leading the country.

After a period of extensive international travel, including a NATO meeting in Spain and a controversial trip to Saudi Arabia, Biden had expected to spend more time on the ground in the United States in the coming weeks.

Biden’s predecessor, Donald Trump, tested positive for coronavirus in October 2020, right in the heart of their heated election campaign.

The revelation that he and the first lady, Melania Trump, had both acquired the virus came as a surprise at a time when the epidemic was still raging over the world.

Trump, 74, was taken to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where he spent the weekend receiving different treatments. Three days later, he returned to the White House.

According to the White House, Joe Biden last tested negative on Tuesday.

“Out of an abundance of transparency, the White House will provide a daily update on the president’s status as he continues to carry out the full duties of the office while in isolation,” it said.


“Per standard protocol for any positive case at the White House, the White House Medical Unit will inform all close contacts of the president during the day today, including any members of Congress and any members of the press who interacted with the president during yesterday’s travel.”
