President Biden’s doctor says the POTUS is getting better.
According to a report from White House Dr. Kevin O’Connor. President Biden’s symptoms “have improved” despite dealing with a fever on Thursday night.
“His symptoms have improved,” O’Connor said, noting that the president “did mount a temperature yesterday evening to 99.4°F, which responded favorably to acetaminophen (TYLENOL).”
“His temperature has remained normal since then,” O’Connor said. His symptoms remain characterized as rhinorrhea (‘runny nose’) and fatigue, with an occasional non-productive, now ‘loose’ cough.
“His voice is deeper this morning. His pulse, blood pressure, respiratory rate and oxygen saturation remain entirely normal, on room air,” O’Connor said.
“He will isolate in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations, and we will continue to monitor him closely, during this very common outpatient treatment regimen,” O’Connor added, noting that he will provide updates with “any changes in his condition or treatment plan.”
