Biden once more tests positive for COVID


In the South Court Auditorium of the White House, President Biden removes his face mask on Thursday during a discussion on the American economy with CEOs and members of his Cabinet.

“The President tested positive late Saturday morning by antigen testing after testing negative on Tuesday evening, Wednesday morning, Thursday morning, and Friday morning,” the doctor stated in a statement made public by the White House.

O’Connor said that Biden is symptom-free and in good health. The doctor advised against restarting Paxlovid therapy at the moment, but the president would “reinitiate tight isolation procedures.”

In a tweet, Biden stated: “Folks, I tested positive for COVID once more today. Only a tiny minority of people experience this. Despite the fact that I have no symptoms, I will isolate myself to protect those around me. I’m still at work, but I’ll soon be returning on the road.”

Biden, 79, has received two booster doses and is fully immunized. On July 21, he had his initial positive test.

Paxlovid, an antiviral medication, was used to treat him for five days. Paxlovid has been reported to be very successful at lowering hospitalization and death risks for COVID-19 patients with mild to moderate symptoms. However, some Paxlovid users see a “rebound,” in which they may retest positive two to eight days after their symptoms have subsided and their previous test was negative.

According to the case reports that are currently available, patients treated with Paxlovid who experience COVID-19 rebound had minor illnesses; there have been no instances of severe disease.
