On Wednesday, Dr. Kevin O'Connor, the presidential physician, disclosed the outcomes of Joe Biden's annual physical examination, affirming the absence of any new health issues.

Dr. O'Connor determined that Biden is "capable of performing his duties" and possesses the physical capacity to fulfill his role as the leader of the United States.

In a memorandum addressed to White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, Dr. O'Connor stated, "The President is in good health, and this year's evaluation did not reveal any new concerns." He further emphasized that Biden is fully capable of executing his responsibilities without any limitations or adjustments.

Describing President Biden as an "energetic, vigorous, and resilient 81-year-old male," Dr. O'Connor reiterated his confidence in Biden's ability to effectively carry out his duties as the Commander in Chief, Chief Executive, and Head of State.


Furthermore, Dr. O'Connor confirmed that specialists from the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center concurred with his assessment.

The report highlighted that most aspects of the President's health remained consistent with the previous examination, with his gait being noted as "rigid but stable."

According to the report, Biden maintains a healthy lifestyle by abstaining from tobacco and alcohol consumption, in addition to engaging in regular exercise at least five days a week.
