According to a summary released by the White House Friday, President Joe Biden's symptoms have improved after his first day of treatment for COVID-19.

Dr. Kevin O'Connor wrote in a memo that the president is tolerating treatment well.

According to O'Connor, Biden's temperature reached 99.4 on Thursday night, but returned to normal after he took Tylenol. 

Biden still has a runny nose, fatigue, and a loose cough.

As long as he is breathing room air, his pulse, blood pressure, respiratory rate, and oxygen saturation remain completely normal.

During a regular screening for the virus, Biden tested positive. Until he tests negative, he is isolated in the White House. 

As a result of his vaccination, two booster shots, and taking the antiviral drug Paxlovid, Biden is well protected.

In an interview with ABC's Good Morning America, COVID Response Coordinator Dr.
