Obama tests positive for COVID-19, says he’s ‘feeling fine’


PTI, Mar 14, 2022, 8:15 AM IST

Former US President Barack Obama has said he tested positive for the coronavirus, though he’s feeling relatively healthy and his wife, Michelle, tested negative.

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

“Michelle and I are grateful to be vaccinated and boosted.” Obama encouraged more Americans to get vaccinated against the coronavirus, despite the declining infection rate in the US.

There were roughly 35,000 infections on average over the past week, down sharply from mid-January when that average was closer to 8,00,000.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that 75.2 per cent of US adults are fully vaccinated and 47.7 per cent of the fully vaccinated have received a booster shot.

The CDC relaxed its guidelines for indoor masking in late February, taking a more holistic approach that meant the vast majority of Americans live in areas without the recommendation for indoor masking in public.
