President Biden COVID-19 Positive Again

President Joe Biden tested positive for COVID-19 again on the weekend, three days after a negative test allowed him to resume work as usual from the Oval Office.

The presidential physician, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, wrote in a memo that the antigen test represents a “rebound” case of the coronavirus. He attributed it to the Paxlovid treatment Biden was prescribed; the pills are meant to lower the chance of requiring hospitalization for high-risk COVID-19 patients.

“This happens with a small minority of folks,” Biden said in a tweet, adding that he has no symptoms but plans to isolate himself in the White House residence.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre added that the president was “feeling fine.”

O’Connor stated that “there is no reason to reinitiate treatment at this time, but we will obviously continue close observation.” His office will provide updates as needed, he wrote.

The White House announced that Biden, who is fully vaccinated and has received two booster shots, initially came down with the virus on Thursday, July 21, experiencing “very mild” symptoms.
