President Joe Biden tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday (July 21).

In a statement, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said President Biden “will isolate at the White House and continue to carry out all his duties.” 

For extra peace of mind, First Lady Jill Biden added, “He’s doing fine.”

President Biden is fully vaccinated and twice boosted. 

He is experiencing “very mild symptoms” and he was given Paxlovid by his doctors.

Dr. Ashish Jha, the White House COVID coordinator, said Biden has a runny nose and fatigue, but no fever.

The First Lady tested negative on Thursday morning. 

The President’s COVID-19 diagnosis comes a day after he drew national attention for seemingly stating he has cancer.

During a speech about global warming, President Biden spoke on emissions from oil refineries near his childhood home in Claymont, Delaware.

“That’s why I and so damn many other people I grew up with have cancer and why for the longest time Delaware had the highest cancer rate in the nation,” Biden said.

The White House said the POTUS was referring to the “non-melanoma skin cancers” he had removed before he took office. 

Just take a moment and say a prayer for President Joe Biden cause…
