WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden tested positive for COVID-19 again Friday in his battle against a rare case of “rebound” following treatment with an anti-viral drug. The White House reported the rebound case on July 30.
White House physician Dr. Kevin O’Connor says in a letter Friday that the president “feels well and his cough has almost completely resolved."
Biden is working from the executive residence and signed two bills Friday that will hold those who commit fraud under COVID-19 small business relief programs accountable. After Biden tested positive on Saturday, he canceled plans to travel and hold in-person events.
The 79-year-old Biden originally tested positive on July 21. He was treated with the anti-viral drug Paxlovid and he had ended his isolation on July 27 before the rebound last Saturday.
