The 79-year-old president “tested positive late Saturday morning in an antigen test” and “will resume strict containment measures,” wrote Doctor Kevin O’Connor, according to which the cases of Positive “rebounds” are common among people treated with Paxlovid, Pfizer’s anti-Covid pill.
As Joe Biden had tested negative on Tuesday evening, Wednesday morning, Thursday morning and Friday morning, “this is definitely rebound positivity,” according to his doctor. “The President has not experienced a re-emergence of symptoms and continues to feel completely well.” “There is therefore no reason to resume treatment at this stage”, but Joe Biden, the oldest president ever elected in the United States, will remain under observation.
The latter had tested positive on July 21 with “very mild symptoms” and was released from confinement on Wednesday, after negative tests. The president, fully vaccinated and who has received two booster doses, is keen to “protect all those (…) who have to work near him”, whether they are White House staff, his security guards body or those around him, concluded Dr. O’Connor.
