During her vacation on Kiawah Island, she stayed in isolation after receiving positive test results for several days.The First Lady was initially negative after her husband was diagnosed, despite being double vaccinated and twice boosted. As to how she came into contact with the virus, it is unclear.
CDC guidelines recommend that she isolate from others for a minimum of five days following the prescription of Paxlovid," Alexander's statement said at the time. A notification has been sent to the First Lady's closest contacts."Ten days after he tested negative for COVID-19, former Vice President Biden announced he had been infected with the virus.
A few breakthrough cases of COVID-19 are possible and expected, since vaccines are only 90 percent effective when it comes to preventing the virus from spreading to people who have been fully vaccinated. However, it is likely that a vaccinated person who tests positive will not experience any symptoms or they will have a much milder illness than a non-vaccinated person who does not test positive for HIV. Around 98 to 99 percent of the deaths caused by COVID-19 occur in people who have not been vaccinated against the virus.
