This time it’s the right one for Joe Biden. The US president ended his strict isolation on Sunday after testing negative for Covid-19 for the second day in a row, the White House announced.
The septuagenarian leader can now go to public events “safely” and resume his travels, said his doctor Kevin O’Connor in a letter.
” I feel good “
“I feel good,” the Democratic president assured reporters with a smile a few moments before taking a helicopter to his second home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, his first trip outside the American capital since July 20.
He also said he was optimistic about the adoption in the Senate on Sunday of a new version of his major social and climate reform. “I think it will be adopted,” he said. According to his official agenda, Joe Biden must travel Monday in the American state of Kentucky, victim of devastating floods.
Tested positive for Covid-19 for the first time on July 21, Joe Biden had tested negative, then suffered a “rebound” of positivity on July 30. He had been isolated at the White House for a week.
