The White House reported that US President Joe Biden tested positive for COVID-19.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that Biden has already begun taking Pfizer’s Paxlovid treatment.
Biden earlier denied that he was COVID during his recent address and said it was just a cold.
“I am ok. I have a test every day, a COVID test, checking for all the strands. What I have is a one-and-a-half-year-old grandson who had a cold who likes to kiss his Pop. And he’s been kissing me — anyway, it’s just a cold,” said Biden.
Biden is expected to continue his duties in isolation at the White House.
There is no information yet on Biden’s close contacts or where he got the virus from.
