US President Joe Biden has continued to test positive for Covid-19, his White House doctor said Tuesday, and is experiencing a return of at least one symptom, described as a "loose cough."
After previously suggesting that Biden was symptom free since coming down with a "rebound" case of Covid, White House physician Kevin O'Connor said "the president continues to feel well, though he is experiencing a bit of a return
of a loose cough."
Biden, who at 79 is the oldest person to hold the presidency, continues to self-isolate after once again testing positive.
Biden had recovered last week from a first bout of Covid, but after four days of negative tests he again had a positive result Saturday.
In a memorandum Sunday, O'Connor linked that result to "rebound positivity." He said patients treated with Paxlovid -- as Biden was -- sometimes clear the virus but still test positive afterward.
