Barack Obama Tests Positive for COVID-19, Says ‘Feeling Fine’

Former U.S. President Barack Obama confirmed on Sunday that he had tested positive for COVID-19 and that he was otherwise healthy. He was feeling fine other than a scratchy throat, he has said in a tweet.

Obama tweeted, “I’ve had a scratchy throat for a couple days, but am feeling fine otherwise.”

“Michelle and I are grateful to be vaccinated and boosted, and she has tested negative,” he wrote.

“It’s a reminder to get vaccinated if you haven’t already, even as cases go down,” he urged people.

In the United States, certain demographics, like as African Americans and Republicans, are more skeptical about the Covid vaccination than others.

After spending part of the winter in Hawaii, Obama had lately returned to Washington, DC. According to CNN, he tested positive in DC, according to a source close to him.

After then-President Donald Trump claimed he tested positive in October 2020, before vaccines were widely accessible in the US, Obama becomes the second US President to get the illness.

Throughout the pandemic, Obama has been a strong supporter of public health efforts. He canceled his 60th birthday party on Martha’s Vineyard last August due to concerns about the Delta variant at the time.

According to data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, just 2% of the US population lives in a county with a “high” Covid-19 community level.

The others are in “low” or “medium” community levels, where masking isn’t recommended and immunocompromised persons and those at high risk of severe disease are encouraged to take extra precautions against COVID-19, respectively.

According to figures published by Johns Hopkins University, there have been 79,517,492 coronavirus cases registered in the United States, with 967,552 persons dying.
