Former President Barack Obama tested positive for COVID-19 on the 13th, but he is in good health and his wife, Michelle Obama, has tested negative.
“I’ve had a sore throat for a few days, but I’m feeling good,” Obama tweeted, according to the Associated Press.
He encouraged more Americans to be vaccinated against the coronavirus, despite a decline in the number of COVID-19 infections in the United States.
The number of new daily cases of COVID-19 in the United States fell sharply from 800,000 in mid-January to 35,000 last week.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that 75.2% of adults in the United States were fully vaccinated, and 47.7% of them also received a booster shot.
