White House infected Biden with Corona
This news is announced in a situation where the new wave of Covid-19 and its substrains, including the BA.4 and BA.5 variants, has spread across the United States. Yesterday, during a trip to Massachusetts, Biden talked about clean energy goals and the government’s efforts to achieve it.
More importantly, according to NPR; During a meeting on the South Lawn of the White House last week, Biden had lengthy conversations with people and posed for photos, shook hands or hugged many.
On the other hand, the same media says that during a 4-day trip to the Middle East, Biden shook hands with regional leaders and attended meetings without wearing a mask. The published letter from Biden’s doctor to Karin Jean-Pierre shows that Biden’s symptoms are very mild and mainly consist of fatigue, a runny nose and a dry cough that began Wednesday evening.
The White House doctor predicts that due to the fact that Biden has received the necessary “maximum protection”, i.e. complete vaccinations and booster drugs; Probably responds positively to Paxlovid treatment.
Of course, the age of 79 for this old man can be a significant risk for him, but at least the White House has announced that until Biden’s test is negative, he will continue to perform his duties in quarantine.

At the time, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki acknowledged there was a possibility Biden had Covid-19, but said there were no plans to increase testing or require masks around the president.
