CNBC is reporting that Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden has tested negative for the coronavirus.
According to CNBC:
Democratic nominee Joe Biden has tested negative for the coronavirus, hours after President Donald Trump had revealed he tested positive.
“Vice President Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden underwent PCR testing for COVID-19 today and COVID-19 was not detected. I am reporting this out in my capacity as both Vice President Biden and Dr. Biden’s primary care physician,” said Dr. Kevin O’Connor.
The Biden campaign said the former vice president and his wife, Jill Biden, were both tested Friday morning out of an abundance of caution.
During the presidential debate Tuesday in Cleveland, Biden was in the same room as Trump was for nearly two hours on stage.
Biden’s running-mate Kamala Harris has also tested negative for the virus.
