WASHINGTON — President Biden finally tested negative for the coronavirus Saturday, a week after his rebound of cases, but a White House doctor said the president will remain in isolation “very prudently” until he tests negative a second time.
Biden has stayed away from the Oval Office since testing positive again on July 30, even as he tried to maintain a public presence through video messages from the White House residence. The resurgence of the virus has kept him out of politics and delayed summer travel.
According to White House physician Dr. Kevin C. O’Connor, the president has shown few symptoms in his rebound cases and has been in relatively good health during the video campaign over the past few days. “The president continues to feel good,” Dr. O’Connor said in a memo to reporters on Saturday.
