President Biden tested positive for the coronavirus again on Saturday morning, a rebound attributed to the Paxlovid treatment he was taking, but he has not experienced a recurrence of symptoms at this point, the White House doctor said.
Mr. Biden “continues to feel quite well,” said Dr. Kevin C. O’Connor, his physician, in a memo released by the White House. “This being the case, there is no reason to resume treatment at this stage, but we will obviously continue close observation,” he added.
The positive test, however, means that Mr Biden will resume “strict isolation procedures”, as Dr O’Connor put it, in line with medical advice. Although the White House made no immediate announcement of changes to his schedule, the test will likely force the cancellation of his trip to his home in Wilmington, Delaware, on Sunday and possibly a work trip to Michigan scheduled for tuesday.
