Former Secretary of State and Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton tests positive for COVID-19

Former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton announced on Tuesday she had tested positive for COVID-19.

The former First Lady is fully vaccinated and says she is feeling fine. “Well, I’ve tested positive for COVID. I’ve got some mild cold symptoms but am feeling fine,” she wrote on Twitter.

Clinton credited vaccines with her mild case of the virus, and urged others who have not yet received their COVID-19 vaccinations to go and get them. “I’m more grateful than ever for the protection vaccines can provide against serious illness. Please get vaccinated and boosted if you haven’t already!” Clinton wrote.

She also noted her husband, former US president Bill Clinton, had tested negative and is feeling fine, but is quarantined to be safe.

Earlier in the day, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said she had tested positive for the virus, and would not be able to accompany President Biden to Europe to meet with NATO allies amid the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
