Washington/UNI: Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said on Monday that he had tested positive for COVID-19 despite having received four doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine against the novel coronavirus.

"I would like to let you know that I have tested positive for COVID19. I am thankful to have received four doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and I am feeling well while experiencing very mild symptoms," Bourla said via Twitter.

Bourla said he has isolated and started a course of the anti-viral medication Paxlovid.

US President Joe Biden has recently recovered from the novel coronavirus after being treated with Paxlovid.

Biden had also received four doses of vaccine.

Some 103,000 COVID-19 cases have been reported in the United States, according to data collected by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
