COVID disaster: US President Joe Biden still testing positive

US President Joe Biden has tested positive again for COVID-19, his physician Kevin O’Connor says in a memo released by the White House, adding that the test was taken after Biden finished a light work-out.

Biden continues to feel well and is fever free, O’Connor said, adding that the president is still experiencing an occasional cough on Wednesday but less frequently than on Tuesday.

Biden, 79, had just emerged from isolation on Wednesday last week after testing positive for COVID-19 for the first time on July 21.

He tested positive again on Saturday in what O’Connor described as a “rebound” case seen in a small percentage of patients who take the antiviral drug Paxlovid.
