Now the virus has it too Barack Obama (60) catch. The former US President (2009-2017) said on Twitter on Sunday evening: “The test result for Covid came back positive.” The course appears to be moderate so far. “I’ve had a sore throat for a few days, but I’m fine other than that.”
His wife, Michelle, 58, is “grateful for the vaccinations and boosters”. The former first lady was also tested, but tested negative. He reminded his followers to vaccinate – “even if cases are declining.”
The number of cases has fallen sharply, and the number of deaths remains high
The number of cases in the United States is currently lower than it has been since last summer. According to the New York Times, the number of hospital stays due to Covid-19 has fallen by more than three-quarters from more than 150,000 to about 35,000 since its peak in January. The number of patients in intensive care units has also fallen sharply.
Since the number of deaths naturally lags behind the number of cases, about 1,400 deaths are still reported most days. This value is much lower than the peak of the omicron wave, but it is still considered very high.
After Donald Trump (75), Barack Obama was the only former president to contract Covid-19. George W. Bush (75), Bill Clinton (75) and Jimmy Carter (97) are not known to be ill. Even Joe Biden, 79, who has always worn a mask and conducted most of his campaigning from his Delaware home, hasn’t apparently caught it yet. (relatives)
