Biden coughs into his hand during CNN interview after confirming he hasn’t had COVID-19 test

On Tuesday, former Vice President and Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden spoke with CNN’s Jake Tapper to discuss the Coronavirus pandemic. 

During the program, Biden told Tapper he had not taken a COVID-19 test. Less than a minute later, he coughed into his hand. 

After being pressed by Tapper to cough into his elbow, Biden pushed back, saying it was fine since he was in his house. 

Biden’s health care advice directly violates guidelines by the CDC to cough in one’s elbow or cover one’s mouth with a tissue.
