President Joe Biden has tested positive for COVID-19. White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre released a statement Thursday, confirming his diagnosis and said Biden is experiencing mild symptoms.

Jean-Pierre said the President is taking Paxlovid and will follow CDC isolation guidelines. He will reportedly work in isolation until he receives a negative test, which can be up to 90 days after a positive test. The positive test results come even after he has been vaccinated and received two booster shots.

Biden posted an image of himself working from the Oval Office in an effort to relay the message that he’s “doing great” and “keeping busy” after the positive COVID-19 test. The President later posted a video in which he told the country he’s doing just fine.

Just a year ago, Biden went on CNN to misguide the American people by telling them they will not get COVID-19 if they get vaccinated. His current diagnosis seemingly debunks his previous claim, which further calls into question the administration’s hardline stance and continuous push for coronavirus vaccines as well as boosters.

The 45th President wished Biden well after his diagnosis was announced. In a statement Thursday, Donald Trump said he hopes Biden will be able to recover quickly, just like he did back in 2020. The former President then pointed out Biden apparently fell sick with COVID-19 despite being repeatedly vaccinated and boosted. Trump stressed Biden must recover because no one wants Kamala Harris to become the president.

In recent weeks, concerns have been raised over Biden’s fitness for office. The Republican National Committee has pointed to multiple gaffes suggesting his mental condition may be getting worse. Time will tell whether or not this bout with COVID-19 will add to his already concerning behavior. Meanwhile, the White House said he’s able to perform the full duties of office during this time.
