President Biden will continue to self-isolate at the White House residence after once again testing positive for Covid-19 following treatment with the antiviral Paxlovid, the White House announced.
In a memo released by the White House press office, the President’s physician Dr. Kevin O’Connor said Biden “continues to feel well” despite testing positive for the Sars-CoV-2 coronavirus for the fifth consecutive day.
Dr. O’Connor said he examined Biden after a “light workout” and revealed that Biden “still has the occasional cough, but less often than yesterday.”
“He remains fever-free and in good spirits. Temperature, pulse, blood pressure, respiratory rate and oxygen saturation remain completely normal. His lungs remain clear,” said the former military doctor, who has treated Biden since he was vice president during the Obama administration.
Dr O’Connor added that Mr Biden would “continue his strict isolation measures” and “continue to conduct the business of the American people from the Executive Residence”.
