社評 0722 拜登總統確診
這是拜登總統自新冠疫情爆發以來第一次感染，他在二O二一年元月就任總統前已經打過第針, 之後還不斷打過加强針, 總統本來計劃到各地之訪問勢必取消。
新冠疫情之揮之不去， 顕然給拜登政府繼續帶來極大之困擾 ，尤其目前國內外局勢正處於紛亂階段，尤其是通貨膨脹是全民最關心之焦點。如果處理不當，民主黨將在期中選舉中遭遇重創。
President Biden Tests Positive For Covid-19
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said, “President Biden has tested positive for Covid-19 and is experiencing mild symptoms.”
This is the first time Biden has tested positive for Covid-19. He is fully vaccinated and twice booted. He has begun taking Paxlovid, Pfizer’s antiviral drug.
President Biden will stay consistent with CDC guidelines. He will isolate at the White House and will continue to carry out all of his official duties fully during that time. Senior officials said there are no plans and no need to transfer executive powers to Vice President Harris.
The President’s positive diagnosis comes less than a week after his visit to the Middle East where he held several meetings with world leaders.
We all hope President Biden will have a speedy recovery with the Covid. In the meantime, many issues are facing our country. The most important and pressing issue is inflation that is causing so much pain for all of us.
For many people, the high prices for food and gas are the main concerns in their daily lives. Hopefully, the president can take measures to improve the situation. Otherwise, the Democratic Party will face a major challenge in the upcoming midterm elections.
