Biden has rebound of covid after Paxlovid, back to isolation

WASHINGTON, July 31: President Joe Biden has a “rebound” of covid infection following a course of Paxlovid, an antiviral widely used in the US for covid. None of his contacts has tested positive.

Biden tested positive again on Saturday after completing the five-day course of the medication and testing negative consecutively for about four days starting Tuesday. He had called off his isolation on Wednesday. Thursday and Friday also he had tested negative. He is back in isolation.

The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and Chief Medical Advisor to the President, Dr Anthony Fauci, too had a relapse last month after taking a course of Paxlovid earlier.

Paxlovid 'rebound'

A rebound or relapse is becoming very common with those taking a course of Paxlovid. The White House announced Saturday that he had again tested positive and was not experiencing symptoms.

The latest BA.5 variant of omicron covid has the highest transmission and is the dominant strain in the US. Vaccines are said to offer only limited protection. A booster shot targeting BA.5 is likely to be available in the US very soon.

Biden first tested positive on July 21, there were 17 individuals who were considered close contacts. None of them tested positive.

He then had mild symptoms, including runny nose, fatigue, high temperature and a cough, according to his doctor. He completed a five-day course of Paxlovid, said White House physician Dr Kevin O'Connor.

Biden was fully vaccinated and has received two booster shots.
