'Wear A Mask': Joe Biden's 'Reminder' After Negative Covid-19 Test

Joe Biden has tested negative for Covid-19.

Wilmington, United States:

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said Friday he has tested negative for Covid-19, three days after his debate with Donald Trump, who has contracted the illness.

"I'm happy to report that Jill and I have tested negative for Covid," Biden said. "I hope this serves as a reminder: wear a mask, keep social distance, and wash your hands."

Minutes before, his doctor Kevin O'Connor issued a statement via the 77-year-old former vice president's campaign about the negative result.

"Vice President Joe Biden and Dr Jill Biden underwent PCR testing for Covid-19 today and Covid-19 was not detected," O'Connor said.

Trump's positive diagnosis -- announced in the early hours of Friday after one of his senior aides, Hope Hicks, tested positive -- has jolted the race for the White House with a month to go.

Earlier, Biden had wished his 74-year-old adversary and his wife Melania a swift recovery from Covid-19.

"Jill and I send our thoughts to President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump for a swift recovery," Biden tweeted.
