The US Defense Secretary, Lloyd Austin, has contracted COVID-19 and will be sequestered at his house for at least five days. He met with Vice President Joe Biden on December 21.

The US Defense Secretary, Lloyd Austin, has tested positive for COVID-19 and will be sequestered at his residence for at least five days. “This morning, I tested positive for COVID-19,” Austin stated in a statement posted by the US Department of Defense on Sunday (local time). I ordered the test today after suffering symptoms while on leave at home.” He admitted to having modest COVID symptoms and that he is following his doctor’s advice.

He added that he expects to participate digitally in all critical meetings and talks in the following week “to the extent practicable.” His primary responsibilities, he says, are preventing the infection from spreading, protecting the personnel, and guaranteeing his own speedy and safe recovery. According to the statement, in addition to attending meetings, Deputy Secretary Hicks will represent Austin in other instances as appropriate.

On December 21, Austin visited with US Vice President Joe Biden, and on Thursday, he conducted his most recent visit to the Pentagon. He also indicated that he would not be coming to the Pentagon after Thursday, and that he communicated with a handful of his staff members who were appropriately veiled and maintaining social distance when he spoke with them. According to the statement, “my last encounter with President Biden was on Tuesday, December 21st, more than a week before I began to suffer symptoms.” “I tested negative that morning,” Austin explained.

Austin’s positive test result was also communicated to his leadership team and the President. The team has tracked and tested everyone with whom he had contact in the previous week.

The Defence Secretary also claimed that he is completely vaccinated, claiming that he received a booster shot in early October. Vaccines, according to his doctor, have rendered the infection significantly less dangerous than it would have been otherwise. “I am grateful for that,” he added. He has pushed everyone who is eligible to receive a booster shot because he believes it is a matter of being prepared.
