WASHINGTON (AP) — Former President Jimmy Carter says he's recovered from a "bout with a virus" and has resumed his relatively hectic schedule at the age of 86.

Carter tells CBS's "The Early Show" that "I feel fine." He says he had "one day of intensive hospital care and I've been out working hard ever since."

Carter has been among America's most active former presidents, and he was in the capital Monday to look after a Habitat for Humanity project. The Democrat was president for one term, losing to Republican Ronald Reagan in 1980.

The former president, asked about prospects for Middle East peace, said it's time for Israel to give up its building of settlements in land the Palestinians claim as their own.
