US First Lady, Jill Biden Tests Positive For COVID-19

US First Lady, Jill Biden has tested positive for Covid-19 and developed mild symptoms, the White House said today.

This comes two weeks after her husband, the US President, Joe Biden contracted the virus for a second time.

The 71-year-old tested negative Monday but developed “cold-like symptoms late in the evening,” her communications director Elizabeth Alexander said in a statement.

Alexander said a subsequent rapid antigen test was negative, but a more detailed PCR test was positive.

The first lady has been prescribed a course of the oral antiviral pill Paxlovid and will isolate for at least five days.

She “is double-vaccinated, twice boosted, and only experiencing mild symptoms,” Alexander added.
