US President Joe Biden's doctor, Kevin O'Connor, said Thursday in a letter to the White House spokeswoman after the president tested positive for the Coronavirus.

Biden suffers from a runny nose and fatigue accompanied by a dry cough at times.

O'Connor said in his letter to spokeswoman Karen Jean-Pierre that Biden had mild symptoms on Wednesday evening, adding that he expect Biden to respond positively to treatment.

"Folks, I’m doing great. Thanks for your concern," Biden tweeted. He added that he was "keeping busy!”

Biden, 79, is fully vaccinated, after getting two doses of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine shortly before taking office, a first booster shot in September and an additional dose March 30.

Jean-Pierre described the president's symptoms as "very mild" and said Biden had been in contact with members of the White House staff by phone and would participate in his planned meetings "via phone and Zoom from the residence.”
