    Jill Biden overcomes COVID after testing negative in two tests

    The American first lady, Jill Biden, overcame COVID, after being isolated for five days and testing negative on two consecutive tests, the White House reported in a statement on Sunday.

    The first lady has been isolated in a private residence where she was on vacation when she tested positive and today she will travel to Delaware, where the president is, according to a brief statement signed by her communication director, Elizabeth Alexander.

    On the 16th, Jill Biden -who has the complete schedule of the vaccine and two boosters- tested positive for COVID-19, after registering mild symptoms of the disease, which were treated with Paxlovid.

    Joe Biden was also tested, but all were negative, although being a close contact with his wife, he has followed the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and has worn a mask in his last public acts.

    Jill Biden’s contagion occurred a few weeks after that of her husband, who tested positive for COVID-19 on July 21.

    Biden tested negative on July 27, although he tested positive again on July 30, a “rebound effect” that, the White House explained, some patients treated with Paxlovid experience. On August 7, the president tested negative again.
