President Biden on Wednesday is continuing to test positive for the coronavirus and therefore will maintain his “strict isolation measures,” the White House’s doctor says.
Kevin O’Connor said in a letter that Biden, who finished a light workout this morning, feels well yet is “still experiencing an occasional cough, but less frequently than yesterday.
“He remains fever-free and in good spirits. His temperature, pulse, blood pressure, respiratory rate and oxygen saturation remain entirely normal,” O’Connor added. “His lungs remain clear.”
“Given his rebound positivity which we reported Saturday, we continued daily monitoring. This morning, his SARS-CoV-2 antigen testing remained positive,” the doctor also said.
Biden will remain isolating and will “conduct the business of the American people from the Executive Residence,” according to O’Connor.
O’Connor said last week that Biden tested negative for COVID-19 on Tuesday evening, Wednesday morning, Thursday morning, and Friday morning, but tested positive on Saturday morning by an antigen test.
The president first tested positive for the coronavirus on July 21.
