A week after his Covid relapse, US President Joe Biden tested negative for the corona virus on Saturday. As a precautionary measure, however, Biden will remain in isolation until a second negative test result is obtained, President Doctor Kevin O’Connor wrote in a letter published by the White House on Saturday. The 79-year-old feels very good.
The US President had tested positive around two and a half weeks ago and was treated with the Covid drug Paxlovid. After six days, he ended his corona isolation as a result of a negative test. Then, on Saturday last week, a test was positive again for the first time, and several such results followed. O’Connor had spoken of a “relapse” observed in rare cases in patients treated with Paxlovid.
