Biden tests negative for COVID-19 after weeks of rebound infection


Washington – President Biden tested negative for COVID-19 on Saturday after a week-long rebound infection.

His physician, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, said in a letter that Biden “will continue his strict isolation measures pending a second negative test.”

“The president still feels very good,” O’Connor said.

Mr. Biden had experienced a “rebound positivity” that occurs in a small percentage of patients taking the antiviral treatment Paxlovid.

For the past week, the president has been working in isolation from the Executive Residence.

Mr Biden first tested positive for COVID-19 about three weeks ago and started a course of Paxlovid. Days later, he got a negative test and ended his isolation. But last Saturday, O’Connor told the president: tested positive again, although he experienced no symptoms.
