President Joe Biden will receive his second presidential physical in the coming months, according to the White House, which on Tuesday assured the public of his sustained good health.
Biden, who turned 80 on Sunday, won’t be getting his annual physical right away, according to a brief quote from White House physician Dr. Kevin O’Connor that was given by the White House Press Secretary.
“So the President is in good health and maintains an active lifestyle. That is from the doctor – he shared that with me. He will have a physical in the upcoming months and the results will be released in the same way that it was last year,” after being questioned by reporters on Tuesday about Biden’s health in the wake of the achievement, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre responded.
On November 19 of the previous year, the White House made a six-page letter from O’Connor public, detailing Biden’s health and describing him as fit for duty.
In that report, it was also mentioned that Biden had been having greater problems with his ambulatory gait and throat clearing, both of which were thought to be caused by acid reflux.
Since then, O’Connor has supplied updates as the president dealt with his rebound case of COVID-19, which had very minor symptoms at first.
The physical for this year, however, seems to be moving a little more slowly.
Biden was subsequently asked if he would reveal the details before announcing his upcoming political ambitions. Jean-Pierre took the follow-up question. Without formally announcing his desire to run for reelection, Biden stated last month that “our intention is to run again,”
“I don’t have a timeline for you. We are going to provide the information just as currently, as we did last last year, this time around as well. And it will be happening in the next couple of months,” Jean-Pierre stated.
