The head of the Pentagon, Lloyd Austin, contracted the coronavirus despite being vaccinated with two doses of an American drug, and then receiving a third (booster) dose of the vaccine.
The US Secretary of Defense announced that he had COVID-19 on his Twitter page. Austin clarified that his illness is mild.
In the coming days, the head of the Pentagon will remain at home in quarantine, while he will retain all powers and plans to remotely participate in key meetings.
Austin said that he last contacted the President of the United States, Joe Biden, on December 21 – more than a week before the first signs of illness appeared.
According to the head of the Pentagon, his good health is proof that vaccinations are working.
“I continue to urge everyone who has the right to a booster vaccination to get it,” the minister said to his fellow citizens.
