Former President Bill Clinton stated that he had tested positive for COVID-19. He also noted that he was thankful that he has been vaccinated and boosted and encouraged others to do the same.
“I have tested positive for Covid. Although I have mild symptoms, I am doing well overall and keeping my home busy. He tweeted that he was grateful for being vaccinated and boosted. This has helped keep my symptoms mild.
From early 1993 to early 2001, Clinton was president. His wife, Hillary Clinton, lost the 2016 presidential election against Republican candidate Donald Trump. She had previously served as Secretary of State during President Barack Obama’s White House tenure, and as a U.S. Senator from New York before that.
Hillary Clinton declared earlier this year that she had tested positive to COVID-19.
“Well, I have been tested positive for COVID. I have mild symptoms of the common cold, but feel fine. I am grateful for the protection vaccines provide against serious illnesses. If you haven’t, please get vaccinated. She tweeted her March message.
John Kerry, the Special Presidential Envoy for Climate Change, tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this month.
Whitney Smith, spokesperson for Secretary Kerry, stated that Kerry was self-isolating following a positive test for COVID-19 at Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt. According to the New York Times, He is fully vaccinated, boosted, and has mild symptoms.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Wilensky was positive for the virus, and took Paxlovid. She then tested negative again, and she was back positive.
While COVID-19 vaccines won’t prevent all infections, they provide important protection against serious illness, hospitalization and death due to COVID-19. In a tweet earlier this month, Walensky stated that my updated #COVID19 vaccination helped to ensure my immune system was prepared to protect me from severe illness.
