News broke Thursday morning that President Joe Biden, 79, has tested positive for Covid. The elder politician has received both shots of his initial vaccine and has been boosted with two additional shots.
Famously, Biden has claimed on several occasions that the vaccine keeps a person from a coronavirus infection and the associated disease, Covid-19. While the counterpoint was called a conspiracy theory, it has been confirmed that recent variants and even the original strains were not stopped from spreading based on vaccination status, but were granted therapeutic benefit in the body fighting off the virus.
The president’s team shared that Biden is experiencing mild symptoms and will be taking a regimen of Pfizer’s Paxlovid to combat the illness.
This story will be updated as details emerge.
