CNN medical analyst raves over Biden video: 'This is what living with COVID looks like going forward'

En “Sala de redacción de CNN con Alisyn Camerota y Victor Blackwell,” Wen appeared on a panel to discuss the video of Biden confirming he tested positive for the coronavirus as well as reassuring that he is okay.

The panel, including the hosts, largely approved of the video for pushing a casual perspective of the coronavirus.

That’s a really casual approach. 'Oye, muchachos, I guess you heard. Tested positive for COVID’,” Blackwell joked.

He’s trying to assuage any anxieties and he’s saying, 'Mirar, it’s a beautiful day, I’m feeling fine.’ Right, Dr. Wen? Does anything raise concern when you see that video?” Camerota asked.

“No, I think this actually strikes exactly the right tone,” Wen answered. “I think the message going forward should be, 'Oye, getting COVID is something that happens to all of us. We may be getting this once a year or even more frequently, even despite having all these precautions, you could still get COVID just because of how much virus is around us, and how transmission transmissible it is.’

I think it’s great that President Biden is continuing to work while this is happening. It’s business as usual. COVID is something that’s not stopping him,” ella dijo.

In a likely swipe at the Trump administration, ella añadió, “And I also think this is an opportunity to show what honest, frank, transparent communication when it comes to a president’s diagnosis can and should look like. Y en este caso, I completely agree with that Sanjay said, given that he is vaccinated, double boosted, and also that he is taking Paxlovid, the antiviral treatment, the chance of him becoming severely ill is extremely low. Asi que, this is what living with COVID looks like going forward.

Wen had previously appeared on CNN earlier that day similarly praising the administration’s transparency while also remarking on thebig differencewith how the White House responded with President Biden as opposed under former President Trump.

I commend the White House for being so transparent,” Wen said earlier. “There’s certainly a big difference between how they’re responding now versus with former President Trump. En este caso, I do expect that President Biden is going to make a full recovery, and that his symptoms are going to remain mild.
