Joe Biden to follow Covid guidelines during his India visit: White House


Washington, Sep 6 : US President Joe Biden will follow the Covid-19 guidelines of the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) during his visit to for the Summit and his trip to Vietnam, the White House has said.

The announcement on Tuesday came after First Lady Jill Biden, 72, tested positive for Covid-19 on Monday. President Biden, 80, was tested for the virus on Monday and Tuesday following his wife's positive test, but his results were negative.

The White House said the President has tested negative twice and there is no change in his travel plans for India and Vietnam later this week.

Responding to questions from reporters, it said the President, however, is taking all the necessary precautions and following standard procedures as per the CDC guidelines.

“What I can tell you is that the President certainly is going to test on a regular cadence determined by his physician. Of course, all travellers, including the President, will test before travelling to India,” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters at her daily news conference on Tuesday. “So, that is certainly something that the President will do. As I mentioned, he's following CDC guidelines,” she said.
