Biden tests negative for covid but will maintain isolation

According to a statement issued by Biden's doctor "the president continues to feel good"

The president of the United States, Joe Biden, gave a negative test for covid this Saturday, after a week testing positive for a "rebound" case of the disease.

"The president continues to feel good," Biden's doctor, Kevin O'Connor, explained in a letter distributed by the White House, in which he explained that the isolation will be carried out "out of an abundance of precaution," according to an EFE review.

The White House announced on July 21 that Biden had been infected and on July 27 he came out of isolation after testing negative.

However, on July 30, he tested positive again, according to O'Connor for the effects of the oral antiretroviral drug Paxlovid that he took for five days to help with the symptoms of the disease.

According to the doctor, that anticovid pill may have a “rebound effect”, which is what would have caused the president's second positive.

Biden is expected to travel with First Lady Jill Biden to Kentucky on Monday to oversee rescue teams and support families affected by recent flooding, which has left dozens dead and hundreds missing. in the state.
