Another COVID Test For Joe Biden: Is Paxlovid Rebound To Blame?

Joe Biden

After routinely testing negative earlier in the week, US Vice President Joe Biden tested positive for Covid-19 on Saturday, July 30. According to Biden’s physician Kevin O’Connor, the President tested positive for an antigen on Saturday morning after testing negative on Tuesday evening, Wednesday morning, Thursday morning, and Friday morning. Despite this, he reports feeling “very good” and has no symptoms.

The President’s recurrence of infection is another instance of what is known as a “Paxlovid rebound” – a condition in which patients who have taken the antiviral medication Paxlovid have a recurrence of infection days after testing negative. Before Joe Biden, the president’s chief medical officer, Dr. Anthony Fauci, also had a Paxlovid rebound.

Paxlovid has been administered to more than one-third of Americans who have tested positive for Covid-19 this summer, and many of these patients have tested positive again soon after testing negative.

Contrary To CDC Recommendations, Joe Biden Was Not Disguised When He Attended Open Engagements 

Although information regarding the incidence of infection recurrence or its long-term effects on the patient is still lacking, “Paxlovid rebound” is now recognized as a real phenomenon in the more than 2.5-year fight against the coronavirus. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned in May that patients who have finished a term of Paxlovid medicine could test positive once more and should stay home for five days.

The facts are that both Joe Biden and Fauci are senior citizens, aged 79 and 81, respectively, and that both have had all recommended vaccinations. According to Dr. O’Connor’s statement from the previous week, Joe Biden most certainly carried the Omicron subvariant BA.5. Currently, BA.5 is the most common variation in the US. Additionally, it is the coronavirus strain that has been found as being the most contagious. BA.5 has demonstrated an impressive capacity to bypass immune defenses induced by both earlier Covid-19 infection and vaccination protection.
