Former President Barack Obama said Sunday that he tested positive for the coronavirus and has a scratchy throat but is otherwise fine.
In a post on Twitter, Mr. Obama said former first lady Michelle Obama tested negative, and both were glad they were vaccinated and boosted.
Mr. Obama isn’t the first president, former or current, to get the coronavirus.
President Donald J. Trump tested positive in October 2020, in the waning weeks of his presidency. Then-first lady Melania Trump was also sick. Mr. Trump played down the seriousness of the virus for months before he was hospitalized with symptoms of Covid-19. He recovered before the election.
