Reports reaching the desk of Africa Daily News, New York confirms that the President of the United States, Joe Biden has tested positive for Covid-19 for a second time and is returning to isolation, his White House doctor confirmed, attributing the result to ‘rebound’ positivity from treatment the President received.

In a memorandum which was obtained by Africa Daily News, New York on Sunday, the presidential physician Kevin O’Connor wrote that; ’79-year-old Biden ‘tested positive late Saturday morning, by antigen testing,’ following four consecutive days of negative tests, and ‘will reinitiate strict isolation procedures’.

‘This in fact represents ‘rebound’ positivity,’ O’Connor wrote, referring to a situation in which patients treated with the drug Paxlovid — as Biden was — clear the virus but test positive after completing their course.

‘The president has experienced no re-emergence of symptoms and continues to feel quite well. This being the case, there is no reason to reinitiate treatment at this time,’ he added.

The second positive test came just three days after O’Connor said Biden had tested negative for the disease and no longer needed to isolate, which he had been doing since receiving a first positive result on July 21.

Africa Daily News, New York recalls that two weeks ago, Biden had tested positive for COVID-19, Africa Daily News, New York reports.

As at then, he was said to be presently experiencing some mild symptoms and would continue working but in isolation, the White House disclosed on Thursday night.

In a Tweet, Biden had stated that he is ‘doing great’ despite testing positive for COVID-19.
