US First Lady Jill Biden gave an update about the health of US President Joe Biden after contracting Coronavirus on Thursday.

Biden said that the President is "feeling good" and "doing fine." She also revealed that she tested negative and should continue to wear a mask.

The US President Joe Biden tested positive for Covid-19 and will isolate at the White House, Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in a statement on Thursday.

“He is fully vaccinated and twice boosted and experiencing very mild symptoms. He has begun taking Paxlovid,” she said in a statement.

“Consistent with CDC guidelines, he will isolate at the White House and will continue to carry out all of his duties fully during that time,” she added.

The president will attend scheduled meetings at the White House by phone and Zoom.

“Consistent with White House protocol for positive COVID cases, which goes above and beyond CDC guidance, he will continue to work in isolation until he tests negative. Once he tests negative, he will return to in-person work,” she added.

The White House will provide a daily update on Biden’s status out of an abundance of transparency, the statement said.

The president’s last negative test for COVID-19 was this Tuesday, it added.
