BREAKING NEWS: Joe Biden FINALLY tests for COVID seven days after he was re-infected by virus but stays he will continue to isolate until he receives second negative test

Joe Biden has finally tested negative for COVID, seven days after suffering a rebound infection from the virus – but says he’ll continue to isolate for now. 

The president, 79, received a negative antigen test result Saturday, White House physician Dr. Kevin C. O’ Connor said in a letter published Saturday.

He won’t leave isolation until he receives a second negative test, likely from a ‘gold-standard’ PCR swab.  

O’Connor wrote: ‘The president continues to feel very well. Given his rebound positivity which we reported last Saturday, we have continued daily monitoring.

‘This morning, his SARS-CoV-2 antigen testing was negative.

‘In an abundance of caution, the President will continue his strict isolation measures pending a second negative test as previously described.’

O’Connor gave no indication as to when the second test result will become available, but said he would keep White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre up-to-date with any further developments.  

Biden’s negative COVID test was announced with this letter sent by his physician Dr Kevin C. O’Connor to White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre Saturday

Biden first tested positive for COVID July 21. He took Paxlovid anti-viral treatment for the condition, and tested negative on July 27.

But he suffered a rebound on July 30, with another positive test result.

The president spent a total of 13 days isolating in the White House – including seven during his most recent re-infection, before Saturday’s negative test.

He has continued to conduct official business and says his symptoms were mild.
