Just a day after people started to express concern over President Biden’s health following his “cancer,” comments, now there may be a reason he appeared a bit “off.”
This Thursday, White House Press Secretary Karin Jean-Pierre announced that Biden has been diagnosed with COVID-19. She released a statement this morning that gives an update on his health. The statement read, “Consistent with White House protocol for positive COVID cases, which goes above and beyond CDC guidance, he will continue to work in isolation until he tests negative. Once he tests negative, he will return to in-person work.
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. 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. The President’s last previous test for COVID was Tuesday, when he had a negative test result.
