Biden is still testing POSITIVE for coronavirus his doctor says after the president returned to work

Biden is still testing POSITIVE for coronavirus his doctor says after the president returned to work less than one week after initial diagnosis before relapsing

  • President Joe Biden still testing positive for COVID-19 on Sunday
  • Comes after a rebound case on Saturday following a negative test last week
  • Biden returned to work in person following the negative test and after a week of isolating after the initial positive test 10 days ago

President Joe Biden ‘unsurprisingly’ tested positive again for COVID-19 on Sunday after his case rebounded over the weekend.

White House Physician Kevin O’Connor’s update claims Biden is feeling well and did not note any changes, continuation, emergence or presence of symptoms related to his coronavirus case.

Biden retested positive for COVID-19 on Saturday after testing negative twice and Wednesday and returning to in-person work following less than a week of isolation and working from the White House residence. 

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines state that five days after initial diagnosis, an asymptomatic person can end isolation.

It is not clear if there are any treatments, O’Connor just noted that he will continue monitoring the condition and reporting it to the White House.

Biden released a 12-second video from the residence on Saturday after his doctor revealed the rebound case to give a ‘quick update’ and show off his work-from-home situation on the balcony looking over the South Lawn. Lounging beside him was his German Shepherd dog Commander.

‘Hey folks, Joe Biden here,’ the president says in the video. ‘Tested positive this morning. Going to be working from home for the next couple days. And I’m feeling fine too, everything’s good. But Commander and I got a little work to do.’

In a memo released on Saturday, Dr. O’Connor, said the president is experiencing no new symptoms and ‘continues to feel quite well.’

O’Connor warned of the possibility of a testing ‘rebound,’ which could occur on a small percentage of patients who, like Biden, used the antiviral medication PAXLOVID as part of their treatment against COVID.
