Joe Biden tests negative for coronavirus, campaign says

Democratic nominee Joe Biden continues to test negative for the coronavirus, his campaign said Tuesday after committing to release the results of each of his COVID-19 tests.

“Vice President Biden underwent PCR testing for COVID-19 today and COVID-19 was not detected,” a statement read.

The campaign has begun testing the former veep, 77, on a regular basis after President Trump and the first lady were diagnosed with the potential deadly virus on Friday.

Biden is in the swing state of Pennsylvania on Tuesday to deliver a speech at Gettysburg where he will reportedly deliver a forceful call for unity.

Trump’s infection with COVID-19 came three days after he sparred with Biden during their first debate in Cleveland, Oh., sparked fears about the Democratic nominee contracting the virus.

Trump returned to the White House residence on Monday evening after a three-night stay in Walter Reed National Military Medical Center where he was treated for mild symptoms of COVID-19.

He is continuing his treatment at home but is eager to get back out onto the campaign trail, with just 28 days until the presidential election.

A coronavirus outbreak is tearing through the West Wing, infecting a dozen associates and employees of the president who has been laid low by the virus.

Meanwhile, Biden has been free to continue campaigning across the country, visiting battleground states after spending months on end sequestered in his Delaware basement at the peak of the pandemic.
