US President Joe Biden has been diagnosed with Covid-19 again, just three days after being given the all-clear.

 

Just three days after being given the all-clear to go back to work, US President Joe Biden has today, Saturday, July 30, again tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, he has gone back into isolation.

Dr Kevin O’Connor, his personal physician, explained in a memo that the President ‘continues to feel quite well’.

Taking to his official Twitter profile @POTUS, 79-year-old Mr Biden tweeted: ‘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’.

While isolating from his previous bout of coronavirus, the President had taken the new Paxlovid viral medication. Dr O’Connor had warned him that a small percentage of patients can suffer a ‘rebound’ after taking this new Covid treatment.

After recovering, Biden had spoken of taking Paxlovid, a treatment that has been offered free to infected Americans. In its clinical trials, the Pfizer pill showed that if taken as soon as Covid symptoms were noticed, it reduced the likelihood of hospitalisation or even death.

The Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned users in May of the possibility of symptoms rebounding in some patients after completing their course of medication. ‘Paxlovid continues to be recommended for early-stage treatment of mild to moderate Covid-19 among persons at high risk for progression to severe disease’, wrote the CDC.

They added: ‘A brief return of symptoms may be part of the natural history of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) infection in some persons, independent of treatment with Paxlovid and regardless of vaccination status’.
