Coronavirus: Former President Barack Obama tests positive for COVID-19, says he’s ‘feeling fine’

Former President Barack Obama said on Sunday that he was positive for the coronavirus, although he feels relatively healthy and his wife, Michelle, was negative.

“I had a scratch on my throat for a few days, but I feel good otherwise,” Obama wrote on Twitter. “Michelle and I are grateful that we were vaccinated and strengthened.”

Obama encouraged more Americans to get vaccinated against coronavirus, despite declining US infection rates There were an average of about 35,000 infections last week, down sharply from mid-January when the average was closer to 800,000.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that 75.2% of US adults are fully vaccinated and 47.7% of those fully vaccinated receive a booster vaccine. The CDC relaxed its indoor coverage guidelines in late February, taking a more holistic approach that meant that the vast majority of Americans live in areas without recommending indoor public coverage.
