President Joe Biden will continue to work from the White House residence after testing positive for Covid-19 again on Friday, the White House announced.
In a memo released by the White House press office, the President’s physician, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, said that Biden “continues to feel well” despite continuing to make a positive recovery from the Paxlovid treatment he underwent after initially tested positive for the coronavirus last month. .
“His cough is almost completely gone. Temperature, pulse, blood pressure, respiratory rate and oxygen saturation remain completely normal. His lungs remain clear,” said Dr O’Connor, who added that Mr Biden would continue the “strict isolation measures” put in place after he first tested positive for Covid-19.
The White House has not clarified the exact circumstances under which Biden will end his self-isolation without a negative test, but he is scheduled to resume public events next week, starting with a visit to Kentucky to visit families affected by the recent floods. He will also sign the Honoring Our PACT Act, which expands benefits for veterans exposed to toxic substances, at a ceremony in the Rose Garden on Tuesday.
