On July 27, President Joe Biden spoke to reporters at the White House after testing negative for COVID-19. The 79-year-old Biden thanked the medical staff at the White House for taking care of him despite suffering symptoms such as a sore throat and body aches.

“I’ve just tested negative for COVID-19 after isolating for five days,” Biden said at an event in the White House’s Rose Garden Washington, his first public in-person appearance since testing positive on July 21.

“My recovery was quick and I’m feeling great,” he said, adding later, “I got through with no fear.”

Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine, which Biden has received four times, has been unable to prevent infection in the United States. Despite severe illnesses, they have fared better.

On Tuesday night and again on Wednesday morning, Biden tested negative, according to White House physician Kevin O'Connor.
