Former US President Bill clinton announced that he is positive for Covid-19 and that he has mild symptoms.

"I'm grateful to be vaccinated and immunized, which made my case mild, and I urge everyone to do the same, especially as we move into the winter months," Clinton tweeted.

The 76-year-old former president was hospitalized last year due to a urinary tract infection that spread to his bloodstream. He also had quadruple heart bypass surgery in 2004 and two stents in 2010.

Clinton is the last US president to contract the coronavirus. The current president Joe Biden got infected this summer, and his predecessor, Donald Trump, was positive in October 2020. The former president Barack Obama, also had a mild case earlier this year.
