According to White House physician Kevin O'Connor D.O., FAAFP, President Joe Biden tested positive for the Chinese Coronavirus once more on Thursday and is still being treated in isolation.
“Given his rebound positive which we reported Saturday, we have continued daily monitoring. This morning, his SARS-CoV-2 antigen testing remained positive,” O’Connor wrote in a memo to White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre. “
He added that the “President will continue his strict isolation measures.
Biden, who has had the Pfizer vaccination twice and twice as boosters, tested positive for the virus for the first time on July 21—the day following a visit to Massachusetts where he was spotted without a mask. After obtaining a negative test result, he announced his return to the White House on July 27.

O'Connor originally claimed that he continued to test negative throughout the coming days, but Breitbart News reported that he was sent to isolation on Saturday after testing positive once more. The doctor claimed that Biden's test demonstrated "'rebound' positivity," which happens in some patients receiving PAXLOVID treatment.
Folks, today I tested positive for COVID again.
This happens with a small minority of folks.
I’ve got no symptoms but I am going to isolate for the safety of everyone around me.
I’m still at work, and will be back on the road soon.

As Breitbart News noted:
Dr. Anthony Fauci was also treated with PAXLOVID after catching the virus and experienced a coronavirus rebound in June.
Fauci ultimately was treated again with Paxlovid as symptoms returned, but he defended the treatment for keeping him out of the hospital.
Despite his latest positive test, O’Connor reported that Biden “feels very well” and will continue to work from the Executive Residence.
“He is still experiencing a very occasional cough, but the cough is improving,” the physician noted. “His temperature, pulse, blood pressure, respiratory rate and oxygen saturation remain entirely normal. His lungs remain clear.”
