Two weeks after his infection, US President Joe Biden tested negative. Nevertheless, he remains in isolation for the time being.

Update from Saturday, August 6th, 7:33 p.m .: US President Joe Biden has tested negative for the corona virus. But he will remain in isolation until there is a second negative antigen test, his doctor Kevin O’Connor said on Saturday, according to a White House statement. “The President continues to feel very good,” O’Connor said.

The 79-year-old Biden tested positive for the first time on July 21 (see first report). He was treated with the Covid drug Paxlovid and came negative a few days later. But on Saturday a week ago, the US President tested positive again – as a result of the so-called rebound effect that can occur after treatment with Paxlovid. Biden is fully vaccinated against the coronavirus and boosted twice.
