President Biden Tests Negative for COVID After 5 Days of Isolation

https://ift.tt/nIPTCK1 Joe Biden has been released from his isolation after testing negative for COVID-19 twice since Tuesday, his doctor announced.

The White House physician, Dr. Kevin O’Connor released a letter stating the President took an antigen test on Tuesday night and on Wednesday morning that were both negative.

“His symptoms have been steadily improving, and are almost completely resolved,” O’Connor wrote. These results come after the president finished his five-day long treatment of (anti-viral drug) Paxlovid,” said the White House physician.

Biden, who has been under “strict isolation measures” for the past 5 days, will continue to wear a well-fitting mask for 10 days around others, O’Conner said.


On Wednesday morning, President Biden tweeted, “Back to the Oval. Thanks to Doc for the good care, and to all of you for your support”, to celebrate his return.

Biden tested positive for COVID-19 last Thursday. He is fully vaccinated and double boosted.
