(CNSNews.com) – President Biden tested negative on Wednesday and is expected to come out of isolation, according to the White House doctor.
“President Biden completed his five day course of PAXLOVID 36 hours ago. As of this morning, he has completed five full days of isolation. He remains fever free and he discontinued use of any acetaminophen (TYLENOL) for the past 36 hours. His symptoms have been steadily improving, and are almost completely resolved,” Dr. Kevin O’Connor wrote in a memo to White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Wednesday.
“Yesterday evening, and then again this morning, he tested NEGATIVE for the SARS–CoV-2 virus by antigen testing,” he wrote. “Given these reassuring factors, the President will discontinue his strict isolation measures.
“As I’ve stated previously, the President continues to be very specifically conscientious to protect any Executive Residence, White House, Secret Service and other staff whose duties require any (albeit socially distanced) proximity to him. For this reason, he will wear a well-fitting mask for 10 full days anytime he is around others,” O’Connor wrote.
“Acknowledging the potential for so-called ‘rebound’ COVID positivity observed in a small percentage of patients treated with PAXLOVID, the President will increase his testing cadence, both to protect people around him and to assure early detection of any return of viral replication,” he added.
Biden spoke at a Rose Garden press conference Wednesday about his experience and COVID treatment and prevention.
