President Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci tested positive for Covid-19 on Wednesday, the White House has confirmed. The 81-year-old public health official diagnosed himself with a rapid antigen test and is experiencing mild symptoms, said the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
“Dr. Fauci will follow the [Covid]-19 guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC] and medical advice from his physician and return to the NIH when he tests negative,” the NIH said in a statement, adding that he will work from home until then.
This was the first time Fauci tested positive for the virus, according to the Washington Post, which added that the doctor has received two doses of the Moderna vaccine and two booster shots as well.
