Biden continues to test positive for coronavirus in ‘rebound’ case

President Biden continued to test positive for the coronavirus Sunday, a day after being diagnosed with a “rebound” case. Biden’s physician, Kevin O’Connor, said his latest positive antigen test was not surprising. Biden, 79, first tested positive on July 21, a Thursday, and began taking Paxlovid, an antiviral therapy. After daily monitoring, Biden tested negative the following Tuesday evening. He emerged from his isolation last Wednesday with a speech in the Rose Garden touting his relatively short isolation and mild symptoms as a testament to his administration's progress on the pandemic. Biden and his doctor said he was experiencing no symptoms during the rebound infection.
