President Joe Biden said on Thursday that he has tested positive for COVID-19 but will continue to work after that.

In a video posted to Twitter, Biden told Americans that he is doing well, and that his symptoms remain mild.

Biden said that I think you heard, this morning I tested positive for Kovid. But I have been double vaccinated, even after that it became

double positive. The symptoms are mild and I really appreciate your inquiries and concerns. But I am fine now, working a lot. Thank you

for keeping it going and in the meantime, thank you for your concern and keep the faith. It's going to be okay," Biden, who stood outside

on the Truman balcony, says of the White House in a 20-second video that was filmed by a masked and socially distanced videographer.

Mild symptoms and diagnosis protocols for Biden - a double-boosted 79-year-old at high risk for experiencing serious illness

would mean isolating and "working and resting" for the rest of the day at the White House residence. According to a senior administration official

It is the first time Biden has tested positive for Covid-19, and he last tested negative on Tuesday, according to White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.
