Joe Biden’s health is better
U.S. President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 symptoms have continued to “improve significantly,” his physician Kevin O’Connor said Sunday, July 24.
“The predominant symptom in Mr. Biden is now a sore throat,” O’Connor wrote in a note to the White House.
“This is most likely the result of lymphoid activation as his body is clearing the virus and encouraging.” “His rhinorrhea, coughing and body aches have significantly decreased,” he added.
The White House announced Thursday morning, July 21, that the 79-year-old president had tested positive for COVID-19. He is currently under quarantine at the White House and continues to perform his duties while receiving treatment.
According to preliminary sequencing results, the causative agent of Mr. Biden’s illness is “most likely” the BA.5 variant. BA.5, a sub-variant of Omicron and the most transmissible COVID-19 mutant to date, is dominant in the United States, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
