President Biden tested positive for COVID-19 again Wednesday and is still experiencing an “occasional cough,” though “less frequently” than on Tuesday, his physician said in a letter.
The big picture: Biden had tested negative on Wednesday last week after finishing his five-day course of Paxlovid, a coronavirus treatment medication. But the president has tested positive for a “rebound” case of COVID since Saturday.
- The president “continues to feel well,” Biden’s doctor, Kevin O’Connor wrote,
What he’s saying: O’Connor added that Biden “remains fever-free and in good spirits.”
- “He is still experiencing an occasional cough, but less frequently than yesterday.”
- “His temperature, pulse, blood pressure, respiratory rate and oxygen saturation remain entirely normal. His lungs remain clear,” O’Conner added, noting that Biden is continuing to follow strict isolation measures.
