President Biden has tested positive for COVID-19 again, Dr. Kevin O'Connor, his physician, says.

"After testing negative on Tuesday evening, Wednesday morning, Thursday morning and Friday morning, the President tested positive late Saturday morning, by antigen testing," the doctor said in a letter released by the White House.

O'Connor said Biden is not experiencing symptoms, and feels well. The doctor said there's no reason to reinitiate treatment with Paxlovid at this time, but the president will "reinitiate strict isolation procedures."

Biden wrote on Twitter: "Folks, today I tested positive for COVID again. This happens with a small minority of folks. I've got no symptoms but I am going to isolate for the safety of everyone around me. I'm still at work, and will be back on the road soon."

Biden, 79, is fully vaccinated and has had two booster shots. He first tested positive on July 21.

He was treated with a five-day course of Paxlovid, an antiviral pill that's been found to be highly effective at reducing the risks of hospitalization and death for COVID-19 patients with mild or moderate symptoms. But some people who take Paxlovid experience a "rebound," where a person can once again test positive between two and eight days after symptoms have faded and having tested negative.

I'm not sure why that would matter.
People can test positive for about a month after infection too - in simple terms it is old antibodies, not active infection.
We are exempt from RATS in any occupational or other situation that requires them for 1 month after infection, for this reason.

Many politicians have had covid, despite taking precautions.
I think because of the large amount of travel they do and public they interact with.

The anti viral are really good for people at higher risk.
I know criteria will vary by country- here in Australia it is people over a certain age, I think it is 70, and people with high risk medical conditions.

President Biden is setting a good example of acting responsibly when contracting Covid, unlike the example of the previous occupant of the White House when he contracted it.

Biden has been testing positive every day... wishing him a negative test soon.

Incidentally...what's up with the sunglasses he's wearing indoors?

He probably doesn't know he has the glasses on.

Poor Joe’s autonomic nervous system is starting to breakdown and making his pupils constrict.
He’s gonna have to take the aviators off sometime.

More than 10 percent of people who get COVID develop some type of eye or ear symptom, and both categories are among the complaints that can end up persisting for a long time.
