Biden, 79, tests positive for COVID AGAIN and returns to White House isolation after ‘rebound’ case common in elderly patients taking ‘Paxlovid’
- President Joe Biden has tested positive for COVID-19 and sent him back into isolation just three days after he was acquitted
President Joe Biden has tested positive for COVID-19, sending him back into isolation just three days after he was allowed to resume his duties.
In a memo, Biden’s physician, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, that the president is not experiencing any new symptoms and “continues to feel good.”
O’Connor had warned of the possibility of a test ‘rebound’, which could occur in a small percentage of patients who, like Biden, were taking the antiviral medication Paxlovid as part of their treatment for COVID.
On Saturday afternoon, Bident tweeted: “People, today I tested positive for COVID again. This happens to a small minority of people.
“I don’t have any symptoms, but I’m going to isolate for the safety of everyone around me.
“I’m still at work and going out soon.”
A memo from Biden’s doctor confirmed the positive test on Saturday
Biden had tested negative for COVID on Tuesday after five days of isolation.
