Barack Obama says he’s contracted COVID-19 — but the good news is that he’s doing alright … attributing that to the fact he’s vaccinated.
The former President announced his status Sunday, writing … “I just tested positive for COVID. I’ve had a scratchy throat for a couple days, but am feeling fine otherwise. Michelleand I are grateful to be vaccinated and boosted, and she has tested negative.”

It’s a reminder to get vaccinated if you haven’t already, even as cases go down.
He adds, “It’s a reminder to get vaccinated if you haven’t already, even as cases go down.”
BO is the second living president to have tested positive for the virus — of course, Donald Trump caught it in 2020 (right in the thick of the pandemic) and seemed to be quite ill for a bit … as he had to take a pause on campaigning to get treatment and to quarantine.
While it’s pretty shocking to hear Barack is positive, it’s not all that surprising or worrisome — especially at this point in the pandemic … when lots of people (including politicians) have also caught it, only to come back at 100% shortly thereafter.
We’ve seen fully-vaccinated senators and representatives announce their COVID breakthrough cases in recent months … and just about every one of them kicked it quickly, attributing their mild to nonexistent symptoms to the jab.
