Bill Clinton tests positive for COVID-19 with mild symptoms

Former President Bill Clinton has tested positive for COVID-19, he revealed to the public on Wednesday.

“I’ve had mild symptoms, but I’m doing fine overall and keeping myself busy at home,” Clinton, 76, tweeted.

The former commander-in-chief added that he’s “grateful to be vaccinated and boosted, which has kept my case mild,” and urged Americans to do the same “as we move into the winter months.”

Clinton’s wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, caught the virus in March and experienced only “mild” cold-like symptoms as well, which she credited to being fully vaccinated and boosted. 

Last October, Clinton was hospitalized for several days with a urological infection unrelated to COVID-19.
