WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Joe Biden has tested negative for COVID-19 after testing positive with a breakthrough case for days, the White House physician said Saturday.
The Democratic president will remain in isolation until he tests negative on a second test, said Dr. Kevin O’Connor in a letter.
Biden, 79, came out of isolation on Wednesday after testing positive for COVID-19 for the first time on July 21. On July 30, he tested positive again in what O’Connor described as a “rebound” case seen in a small percentage of people taking the antiviral drug Paxlovid.
