Jill Biden has contracted COVID-19
The 71-year-old wife of the president has mild symptoms but is doing well overall. Jill Biden has never had COVID-19 before. She was vaccinated twice and boosted twice
U.S. First Lady Jill Biden has been diagnosed with coronavirus, her spokeswoman Elizabeth Alexander said, Reuters reports.
The wife of the American president has mild symptoms similar to those experienced by people with a cold. A CNN source close to Jill Biden says she is doing well.
According to Alexander, on Monday, Biden's test for COVID was negative, but after a while her health worsened. The rapid test she did was negative, but the PCR test showed infection with the coronavirus.
Jill Biden is now in South Carolina on Kiawa Island with the president, CNN reports. Last week, the Bidens went to a golf resort located there for a short vacation. According to Alexander, the first lady will return to Washington after she receives two negative COVID tests in a row.
The president's wife takes an antiviral drug from Pfizer Paxlovid (nirmatrelvir), her representative specified. She was vaccinated twice and revaccinated twice.
Jill Biden, 71, has never had COVID-19 before. Her husband passed a positive test on July 21. He went into self-isolation and also showed mild symptoms. A few days later, Biden's test came back negative, as did the next three. However, on July 30, the president's test for coronavirus was again positive. According to his attending physician Kevin O'Connor, in rare cases this can happen in patients who were treated with Paxlovid (Biden also took it).
