Jill Biden, US First Lady, Diagnosed with COVID-19

According to a statement from Elizabeth Alexander, the communications director for US First Lady Jill Biden, she has tested positive for COVID-19. However, her husband, President Joe Biden, has tested negative for the virus.

Despite experiencing only mild symptoms, she will remain at the couple’s home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware for the time being. Meanwhile, President Joe Biden has tested negative and will continue to monitor his symptoms throughout the week.

The United States has seen a recent increase in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, with the new variant EG.5 on the rise. This variant is responsible for about 17% of the new cases in the country, surpassing the next most common lineage, XBB.1.16.

Last year in August, Jill Biden also tested positive for a rebound case of COVID-19. Despite her diagnosis, President Biden is scheduled to visit India this week to attend the G20 Summit in New Delhi. He will have a bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on September 8.

The G20 Summit, taking place on September 9 and 10 in the national capital, will also provide an opportunity for President Biden to commend PM Modi for his leadership. The summit serves as a premier forum for global economic cooperation.

Following the G20 Summit, President Biden will travel to Hanoi, Vietnam on September 10. There, he will address a range of issues, including the social effects of Russia’s war in Ukraine.
