the 72-year-old First Lady, who is fully vaccinated and has received booster shots, has tested positive for COVID-19.

She will be isolating at her home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, where she and President Joe Biden spent part of the weekend. President Biden, aged 80, has tested negative for the virus following her diagnosis and has returned to Washington DC. 

He will undergo regular testing throughout the week and monitor for any symptoms.  

Despite this, there are no changes to his upcoming international travel plans, which include attending the G20 summit in India and a scheduled visit to Hanoi, Vietnam. 

It's worth noting that both the President and the First Lady had previously tested positive for COVID-19 in August 2022 and had recovered without severe symptoms. 

Although COVID-19 cases are on the rise in the US due to new variants, they remain below the peak seen during the pandemic.
