Albert Bourla, President of Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, a leading manufacturer of Covid vaccines-

during the pandemic, tested positive for the disease this Monday (). He communicated on Twitter that he is “grateful to have received four doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine” and that he is feeling well, with “very mild” symptoms. BioNTech is a smaller company that developed essential elements of the mRNA vaccine produced with the larger partner.

The executive, who is 19 years old, is in isolation and took Paxlovid, an antiviral drug also developed by the pharmaceutical company. US President Joe Biden was in the same situation as Bourla at the end of last month. Previously, the head of the US federal government’s pandemic response since the Trump administration, Anthony Fauci, also became infected despite a full vaccination regimen and booster doses.
