President Joe Biden tests positive for COVID-19
He is fully vaccinated

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



President Joe Biden tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday morning, according to White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.

Biden, 79, is fully vaccinated and double boosted. He is experiencing "experiencing very mild symptoms" and taking the COVID antiviral pill Paxlovid, according to a White House press release.

He will isolate at the White House where he will work remotely, Jean-Pierre stated.

"Out of an abundance of transparency, the White House will provide a daily update on the President's status as he continues to carry out the full duties of the office while in isolation," she pledged.

Biden is the highest-ranking politician to get COVID following a string of public officials who tested positive this summer.

On Tuesday, Jan. 6 committee chair Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) announced that he tested positive for the virus. That same day, Illinois Democratic Gov. JB Pritzker also tested positive for COVID.

Last month, Chief White House Medical Advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci battled COVID.

Kamala was asked to make a statement on Biden's Covid status.

"The President is sick, and when you're sick, you can't be President, but you have to be President, even though your sick...but being sick can't MAKE you President. Only a sick President will know if the President can be sick, but not if the President is sick."

They reporter had follow up question regarding whether she will be spending more time at the WH.

"It's about time. Time is very important. And this is a very important time. We need to think about the time. Both the time we are in, and the time to come. I can't stress enough how important time is. Time is how we measure the past from the present and the future times. It might be my time, it might not be my time. Then again it might be our time."

That's when the pandemic first arrived. Many in government got it.


Treatment is better and Biden is likely in much less of a serious condition than Trump was. 

The main thing is that the new strains are much weaker. Biden is very frail. He has trouble walking in case you missed it. I really want him to have a quick recovery, not because I like him, but because I know how anything happening to him could alter peoples view of him. I just want him alive and clueless.

Getting 2022 Covid variants aren't a shock to anyone and are rarely lethal. The symptoms are quite mild to non-existent. This is typical viral behavior. 

as it was when Trump got it and almost died. 

Trump "almost died" from Covid? That's news to me! He announced that he had [the original] Covid on Oct. 2, 2020 ... over 2 months before the first vaccines were available (Dec. 2020). Thanks to a swift, accurate diagnosis followed by medication(s) that doctors had at that time , he had a moderate case and was able to fully function within 8 days of initial diagnosis. Too bad blue state governors in MI, CA, NY, and NJ didn't follow Trump's physicians' science.

The vaccinations and boosters reduce the likelihood and severity of infection.   Nobody has ever claimed that vaccinations+boosters means it is impossible to get a breakthrough infection.

'Effective' does not mean 100% guarantee against infection nor has anyone of medical/scientific credibility ever suggested anything like that.

As many of us suggested earlier when Trump was speaking about medical science, it is unwise (foolish) to get your medical information from a politician.

In the case of the pandemic, use sources such as the CDC, WHO, etc. and do not literally follow words uttered by a politician on this matter.

As I noted earlier:

TiG@6.3.6 ☞  Biden is not a medical authority.    He oversimplified his message to the point of being wrong.   Follow the science is far superior than following the politician in matters of science.

Good grief Jim, I have repeatedly stated that the vaccinations and boosters do not guarantee 100% protection.

More important, however, is the fact that no medical authority has even implied 100% protection.   There is always the caveat that no matter what it is still possible to be infected.

Vaccinations and boosters mitigate getting infected but if a breakthrough occurs the symptoms are typically less severe and death is far less likely.

If you understand that vaccines and boosters mitigate getting infected and reduce the severity of the symptoms and you understand that nobody has stated that they provide 100% protection then there is no disagreement.   This back and forth is utterly pointless.

That was never 100% true, of course. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines were always advertised as being 94%-95% effective against infection - not 100%. But a year ago, we were barely starting the Delta variant, so Biden’s claim wasn’t far wrong.

A year ago, in July of 2021, 98%-99% of people who were dying from Covid were unvaccinated .

Since then, the virus has mutated rapidly and the vaccines - based on the Alpha virus - are now mainly useful for inhibiting serious illness and death.

I think if Americans had gotten vaccinated right away (like in the first 6 months of availability) it would have saved a lot of lives, but it would not have ended the pandemic. There is no way we could ever have vaccinated 7 billion people that quickly. Meanwhile, the virus has mutated much faster than vaccines could keep up with.

Around that same time, he, Kamala, Fauci, and several others also said that Covid was a disease of the unvaccinated.

It was, as I showed above. But also, it still is. Current data is that if you are unvaccinated, you have about a 17X greater chance of dying  from Covid than if you are vaccinated and boosted.

First, I do not want to see anyone get infected with COVID-19.

Second, it is well known that fully vaccinated people can be infected.   What happens is that the symptoms are much milder than if unvaccinated.

Third, if something happens to Biden, Harris will be PotUS.

I recommend we all wish the very best recovery for Biden.

Indeed and I think the latest strain is not as potent as previous strains, yet apparently much more contagious.  Both my wife and I got it from my son, she was not vaccinated but my son and I were.  All of us had similar mild symptoms, fatigue being the worst of them.  Being diabetic I was worried about the comorbidity issue but it wasn't bad (although it did raise my blood sugars a bit for awhile).  I took the Paxlovid, my wife and son did not, and we all recovered in less than a week, other than a bit of lingering fatigue and she had a slight cough for another few days.

I'm hoping President Biden will recover quickly as well!

My dad and sister both got it.  My mom and I, who were in the same house that weekend, didn't.  Dad was feeling better in about 2 days.  My sis took about 5 days to feel better.  Neither was very sick.  Neither took Paxlovid.  Both were fully vaccinated.  Dad is diabetic, too, so I worried, but it was pretty much like a bad cold for him.  Sis was hit harder, but some of her symptoms might have been from the heat.  She was visiting WV from Wisconsin, and hadn't acclimated to the heat, and my parents' AC chose that week to die.

It takes awhile to get acclimated to a new environment for sure.  A group of my baseball buddies from all over the state gathered recently for a golf tournament in central California.  Four rounds in 3 days.  The first night we had dinner at a restaurant in town where the daytime temps were north of 105 deg.  It does cool down a little though in the evenings (upper 70s, lower 80s) and two of the guys who are from Palm Desert actually ran back out to their car to get their jackets!  Imagine that!  Needles to say, pushing 100 deg on the golf course in the middle of the day was a walk in the park for them.

They both had fevers, but not very high.  I think the heat kept her from getting the sleep she needed to feel better.

My mom needs a jacket when it gets below 80.  And Dad thinks the house is cold when it's 76.  I'm not quite sure why they bothered getting AC.

"Second, it is well known that fully vaccinated people can be infected.   What happens is that the symptoms are much milder than if unvaccinated."

Some people pretend that isn't the case.

So, by liberal standards, when a sitting president contracts COVID, we are to post texts, tweets, write articles hoping for the worst for that president, even wishing death.

After all, we saw that incessantly when Trump caught it.

Funny, I haven't seen any of the same from the right towards Biden. In fact, I have seen nothing but best wishes and a speedy recovery.

Maybe (probably) its because most of us on the right have ethics, morals. We don't normally see that from most on the left.

I’m honestly surprised it took this long.

He should be fine. He’s getting way better healthcare than the rest of us are.

Oh and reports say he can still keep a brisk pace, but someone pointed out that he was just rushing get one last sniff of a young girl before he lost his sense of smell.

Well, the Biden administration has finally reported a tangible positive result.  And, as usual, the reported result is bad.

It's beginning to appear as though COVID is inevitable.  So, it's difficult to have sympathy for what is inevitable.  As long as the treatments work there shouldn't be a problem.  Or so we have been told.

Someone does need to pick up the slack while Biden recovers.  Mild symptoms doesn't mean Biden can simply ignore COVID.  Biden being too active during recovery will only prolong that recovery and possibly worsen the outcome.  Have a heart, take a pause, and carry part of the load.  Unfortunately there are too many political opportunists who will seize the moment to really screw things up.
