The White House physician Dr. Kevin O’Connor provided an update on the President’s health Tuesday; saying Joe Biden is now experiencing “returning” symptoms related to COVID-19.
Read his full letter below:
The President continues to feel well, though he is experiencing a bit of a return of a loose cough. He remains fever-free and in good spirits. His temperature, pulse, blood pressure, respiratory rate and oxygen saturation remain entirely normal. His lungs are clear. Given his rebound positivity which we reported Saturday, we continued daily monitoring. This morning, his SARS-CoV-2 antigen testing remained positive.
The President will continue his strict isolation measures as previously described.
He will continue to conduct the business of the American people from the Executive Residence. As I have stated previously, the President continues to be very specifically conscientious to protect any of the Executive Residence, White House, Secret Service and other staff whose duties require any (albeit
socially distanced) proximity to him. As promised, I will keep your office updated with any changes in his condition or treatment plan.
