Again, Biden tests positive for COVID-19

A US president has again tested positive for COVID-19 and is back in quarantine, a White House doctor said Saturday, saying the result was due to a "rebound" positive test received by the US president.

Biden, 79, said after four consecutive days of negative testing, "getting a positive test for antigens late Saturday morning" and "resuming rigorous quarantine procedures," said Kevin, the presidential doctor. O'Connor wrote in the memorandum.

"This actually represents a rebound positive," O'Connor wrote. He mentioned a situation in which a patient treated with a drug called Paxrovid, such as Biden, cleared the virus but became positive after completing the course. "The president has not experienced a recurrence of symptoms and remains quite comfortable, so there is no reason to resume treatment at this time."

The second positive test came just three days after O'Connor said Biden had tested negative for the disease and no longer needed to be quarantined.
