Today, President Biden’s coronavirus symptoms have “almost completely resolved,” White House physician Kevin C. O’Connor said in a memo released publicly. Biden, who tested positive on Thursday, is experiencing only “some residual nasal congestion and minimal hoarseness,” O’Connor wrote.
As he continues to recover, Biden plans to appear virtually at two events Monday, including an address to the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives. Biden had been scheduled to travel to Florida for the gathering. He also plans to appear before a group of business and labor leaders to promote legislation that would provide subsidies to domestic semiconductor manufacturers and that includes other provisions designed to boost American competitiveness.
On Capitol Hill, the Senate has scheduled a key procedural vote later Monday to advance the bill, which is expected to draw bipartisan support.
