Just days after he recovered from his previous case of the virus, President Joe Biden has tested positive for COVID-19 again. He will self-isolate even if he is not experiencing any symptoms.
President Biden is experiencing what O’Connor, his physician, called “‘rebound’ positivity,” which can happen to a small percentage of patients who are treated with the drug Paxlovid.
Mr. Biden was first diagnosed with COVID less than two weeks ago and he experienced only mild symptoms. After five days testes negative but a positive test came back Saturday morning. After recovery, a rebound has been reported to occur two to eight days later if Paxlovid has been taken by patients, CDC says.
