The president-elect of the United States, Joe Biden, spent Monday at home accepting congratulatory calls from foreign rulers, a day after he was diagnosed with stress fractures in his foot.
The former vice president spoke with presidents Alberto Fernández, from Argentina; Carlos Alvarado, from Costa Rica; Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya and United Nations Secretary General António Guterres indicated their transition team. The COVID-19 pandemic was one of the most prominent topics in the calls, and regional stability issues and climate change were also discussed.
On the other hand, Biden received for the first time the Presidential Daily Report, a highly secret intelligence summary.
Biden’s doctor said Sunday night that the president-elect will likely wear an orthopedic boot for several weeks as part of his recovery after breaking his right foot while playing with one of his dogs.
