President Biden Says He Has Recovered from COVID-19

HeadlineJul 28, 2022

President Biden says he has recovered from COVID-19 and will resume his normal schedule. Biden spoke from the White House Rose Garden Wednesday, where he encouraged people to get vaccinated and boosted and to wear masks in public indoor settings.

President Joe Biden: “Here’s the bottom line. When my predecessor got COVID, he had to get helicoptered to Walter Reed Medical Center. He was severely ill. Thankfully, he recovered. When I got COVID, I worked from upstairs of the White House and the offices upstairs, and for that five-day period. The difference is vaccinations, of course.”

Nearly all U.S. states have seen steady increases in daily COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations over the past two weeks.
