Pfizer’s CEO tests positive for Covid-19 for the second time. Pfizer Inc (PFE.N) Chief Executive Officer Albert Borla said on Saturday that he has tested positive for COVID-19.

Borla added, “I haven’t had a new bivalent booster yet, because I was following the CDC guidelines of waiting three months since my last COVID case back in mid-August. “
