President Biden Gives Update On Health Following COVID-19 Diagnosis

President Joe Biden gave an update Thursday on his health, letting Americans know he is “keeping busy,” following a  positive test result for the coronavirus, just one day before.

Biden, who turns 80 in November, tweeted, “Folks, I’m doing great. Thanks for your concern. Just called Senator Casey, Congressman Cartwright, and Mayor Cognetti (and my Scranton cousins!) to send my regrets for missing our event today.”

The president also posted a video where he stated, “Hey folks, guess you’ve heard, this morning I tested positive for Covid. But I’ve been double vaccinated, double boosted. Symptoms are mild and I really appreciate your inquiry 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.”

Biden has been medicated with Paxlovid, an antiviral medicine used to treat the virus, and has continued with his normal duties.


Prior to his diagnosis, Biden was supposed to travel to Wilkes University in Pennsylvania to discuss the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act. The trip, however, was canceled so Biden could isolate himself inside the White House.

Thus far in Biden’s isolation, he has signed the bipartisan FORMULA Act into law, which is said to help increase the supply of baby formula, and also received his daily briefing on Friday morning.

The Commander-in-Chief’s isolation comes as White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters Thursday — that the location of Biden’s infection doesn’t matter.

While the president seems to be taking his isolation seriously and attempting to get back to full health, his staff is seemingly failing him during this most recent health downturn — which promises not to be the last.
