His wife ran away for Delaware, bringing with her them new shorthair tabby. The personnel in the executive mansion was reduced to essential personnel, which Biden feared could become infected with the easily contagious variant of the coronavirus that probably infected him.

And even a cart of video equipment rolled into second-floor Contract room, phone calls from his grandchildren and a stack of of books about Ireland couldn’t prevent salon fever in.

“I’m only a couple hundred yards away,” Biden told visitors from South Korea. on Tuesday, who listened to him speak on screen in Roosevelt Hall. “I could look out from the balcony and yell at you!”

When the meeting ended, he took off his jacket and went out to Truman’s balcony to just what.

By Tuesday, Biden was feeling well enough to resume work. out in White House gym – the daily routine, which he abandoned during his recovery. Instead of of awakening up during exercises, his German shepherd, the commander, served as his alarm clock on Monday when… in in first the absence of a lady, – he pushed the commander with his elbow, -in- the leader woke up just until 7 am

“My wife is not here,” Biden explained to several hours after. “Usually she takes it out in in the morning while I work upstairs out.”

By Wednesday, Biden had tested negative. on two antigen tests and he was allowed to break out of his isolation although he will have to wear a mask for 10 days. His first stop: White House Rose Garden to talk about your experience with disease.

Long regarded as something of inevitability, Biden fight with However, Covid was a turning point. A little on Biden team expressed quiet relief that what almost everyone expected would come true pass finally did – without, for now, any serious health complications.

For the White House, whose operations were designed — from the very first days — to prevent the seventy-year-old commander-in-chief from the disease, Biden’s aides viewed the disease as sign that even the most protected person can come down with covid and be just Great.

Early in his tenure Biden meetings were held with the smallest groups of officials possibleall of who wore colored bracelets indicating they had been tested for coronavirus today. The masks were required everywhere on White House grounds in in first months of the Biden administration. Travel outside Washington was rare.

The president’s inner circle was so limited that when a long line of Washington officials, including the Vice President, secretary of state, Attorney GeneralSpeaker of the House of Representatives and several senior Biden-level aides, including the press secretary as well as national security advisor — tested positive, neither found guilty in “close contact” with Biden.

Fears that the president has contracted Covid are partly rooted in his age; at the age of 79 he higher risk for serious disease. But some Democrats also wondered how The illness could affect Biden’s political status, given growing questions about whether he would be too old to serve in the military. second term.

And yet life in the bubble did not suit Biden, who annoyed by the restrictions imposed on the job he was looking for for the previous four decades. Attributes like state dinners and awards were arranged on Keep. And perhaps the most annoying for the famous tactile president had visitors rare.

Restrictions began to loosen when vaccinations began. available and the virus began to weaken. Even episodes of Options-driven resurgence didn’t stop Biden from starting live more free.

The day before the positive result, Biden flew in back and onward to Massachusetts for speech on changing of the climate. Photographs from Air Force One show that this is not the case. wearing mask when he was engaged with legislators who were invited on Drive.

He shook hands before and after the event, although he did not linger for long, given the scorching sun and high temperatures. But this was the exception; How is he begins travel more across the country, Biden spent a full 45 minutes greeting the audience. with handshakes and hugs after his speeches.

However, by the time he returned to the White House on Wednesday evening, he began to feel tired. After one restless night and two trials, Biden became second current president of the United States test positive for COVID-19.

Its symptoms are runny nose, sore throat, fever, body pain – they were all considered mild, which the White House attributed to his four doses of vaccine. But rules were still the rules and Biden walked in required period of isolation how is it team started to carry out the plan they had in place for months, start with quick public announcement.

Many White House staffers only learned from this message that the president had Covid.

“We said for For a while, there was a real possibility that the president… like anyone otherwise – Covid can get infected, and we are prepared for this opportunity. We are now executing on our plan so that the president can continue work unhindered from the residence,” chief of staff Ron Klein wrote in memo for staff hours after the initial announcement.

Before reporters this week, the press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was joined White House Covid Response Coordinator Dr. Ashish Jha, instead of doctor who actually leaning towards Biden. Jah, who did not examine the president, had FaceTime with it throughout the course of his illness and received an update from the President’s physician, Dr. Kevin O’Connor.

The journalists protested against being allowed to directly O’Connor question. Jha said that neither Biden nor O’Connor made an explicit decision. against to have O’Connor conduct the briefings himself.

O’Connor, retired colonel. who related to Biden for several years, unseasoned presence on TV or while public question and answer sessions, one official said. He has a free, playful manner with Biden and other high-ranking officials – sometimes using humor to cut through serious moments, including when Biden son Bo was diagnosed with cancer, but usually does not involve with press.

However, Jha made regular appearances as a health worker. commentator on covid before joining White House formerly year.

During former President Donald Trump fight with COVID-19 in 2020, then-White House physician Dr. Sean Conley briefed reporters from steps of Walter Reed National Medical Center, where Trump was hospitalized.

Conley, as it turned out later, hid the severity of Trump’s illness during his briefings. Only when former main of staff member Mark Meadows released his White House memoir, found out that Trump’s oxygen levels dropped to about 86% – dangerous below normal level.

O’Connor, in daily written updates distributed by the White House press office did not reveal Biden’s oxygenation rate not to mention his “oxygenation continues to be excellent on room air.” He has also described Biden’s pulse, blood pressure, and respiratory rate as “normal,” without disclosing any numbers.

White House officials said these vital signs were recorded throughout the course. of day, and that they never deviated from normal levels. And they argued that since the president’s symptoms were mild, their level of transparency was appropriate.

“We have provided, I think, an extraordinary amount of transparency about his departure: when he tested positive; how he did every day; developing nature of his symptoms: did his runny nose get a little worse, a little better?” Jha told reporters on Monday. “We were very, very open and transparent with all of this data”.

The White House was forced to cancel the line of events out of city ​​including a political rally in Tampa, Florida, which was considered as debut of varieties for forthcoming mid-term message from the president.
