On a normal Wednesday, an eye-opening event occurs in the White House. The first lady, also known as Jill Biden, has tested positive in a recent rebound case. It was originally claimed from the 15th through the 17th of August. This had also been similar to the virus Joe Biden got earlier in the summer.

Luckily, there has not been any sign of symptoms. Kelsey Donohue, who is also a “Director of Communications” for Joe and Jill Biden, says she “has experienced no reemergence of symptoms”. Joe Biden continues to test negative after a previous vacation in Kiawah Island, South Carolina. In fact, she had been under quarantine in Delaware. During those five days of isolation, she was under Paxlovid treatment until she tested negative twice. 

Joe Biden will also continue to quarantine to prevent being at high risk of “close contact”.

“Consistent with CDC guidance because he is in close contact with the First Lady, he will mask for 10 days when indoors and in close proximity to others” stated by the White House Officials in the article “Bloomberg”. 

However, officials claim that this recent vacation had caused her to be at “high risk of close contact”. The treatment she’s currently on is really advanced. Poxlovid treatment is proved to be “highly effective”. It helps exclude death, strong sicknesses, as well as diseases. Jill and Joe Biden are currently on prescribed medication.

As mentioned, Joe Biden had Covid not too long ago. He tested positive on July 21st, and he did in fact have symptoms of the virus.

The White House Officials said he “experienced only mild symptoms” such as a “runny nose, and cough.”

Joe Biden then left his second isolation, only to have Covid again. On July 30th, he tested positive once again, though the White House Officials stated that his symptoms were not as bad as the first time he got it.

The White House physician, Dr. Kevin O’Connor said that the “president continues to feel very well.”

Joe Biden does have both required shots, including the booster shot. He has been prescribed the “antiviral therapy poxlovid treatment”, similar to the one his wife was on. At present time, Joe Biden does not have Covid anymore and hopefully does not get it once again.

Although the Covid affairs are unlucky, under the medical circumstances, they should be healthy and fine by the end of it. Joe and Jill Biden will continue to live their life to the fullest once she is no longer under quarantine.
