While America hasn’t quite fully relieved itself of the coronavirus pandemic, there are plenty of signs that things are going in the right direction.
First and foremost, life is getting back to normal (ish) in most parts of the country. Bars and restaurants are back to full capacity, masks are going away in most places, and the latest virulent strains of the illness continue to appear weaker and weaker.
There are still concerns for the at-risk population, however, which includes elderly folks such as President Joe Biden, who tested positive for the virus just days ago.
Doctors at the White House described the Commander in Chief’s symptoms this week.
The president’s physician Dr. Kevin O’Connor released a note Sunday outlining Biden was improving although he still had a sore throat.
“This is most likely a result of lymphoid activation as his body clears the virus, and is thus encouraging,” the note read.
Biden also experienced symptoms of a runny nose, cough, and body aches and continues to have a hoarse voice, the doctor noted.
O’Connor also revealed that Biden uses an albuterol inhaler to treat his cough.
Another physician within the administration was quick to point out that Biden does not use an inhaler regularly, likely hoping to quell any further speculation regarding the President’s age and health.
