The White House announced this Saturday that President Joe Biden has tested positive once more time for Covid-19.
The president’s physician said he’s not experiencing any symptoms, but will still isolate in the White House for the time being.
How can the president test positive again for Covid-19?
Kevin O’Connor, the physician to the president explained that this in fact represents “rebound” positivity, observed in a small percentage of the patients treated with PAXLOVID.
President Joe Biden had tested negative for four consecutive days, prior to this morning’s test.
They don’t think is necessary to reinitiate the medical treatment for the president but rather just isolate in an effort by the president to protect anyone at the Executive residence, White House, Secret Service and other staff members that work closely with him on a daily basis.
President Biden continues to work in isolation
After testing positive for the first time almost 10 days ago, the president had to still work from isolation, with Covid-19 hitting him when he had a lot on his plate.
That time the president did have symptoms, which left him with a raspy voice and cough on the days after he contracted the virus.
White House officials said at the time that the president was working via phone or videoconference and that his appetite hadn’t diminished, he was part of his daily intelligence briefings and even signed bills into law.
