President Biden Confirmed to have Caught the BA.5 Omicron Sub-Variant
However, President Biden remains relatively healthy...
President Biden has been confirmed to have been hit by the BA.5 strain of cornavirus. Most new infections in the United States are coming from this highly contagious omicron subvariant. Dr. Kevin C. O’Conner, the President’s personal physician, said “The president’s causative agent is most likely the BA.5 variant which came from preliminary genetic sequencing and does not affect the treatment plan in any way.”
This specific subvariant now accounts for eight out of ten new cases in the United States and even as it doesn’t necessarily make people sicker, it does spread quickly and navigates through many forms of immunity protection. Biden is said to be taking Paxlovid, a treatment that reduces the possibility of severe or critical illnesses along with regular dosages of Tylenol.
Dr. Kevin C. O’Conner said President Biden “is experiencing no shortness of breath and will continue to use low dose aspirin as an alternative type of blood thinner.” He added, “His symptoms continue to improve.”
