(RepublicanInformer.com)- Joe Biden, President of the United States, has tested positive for COVID-19 for the second day. This appears to be a typical instance of “rebound” following treatment with an anti-viral medication.
Dr. Kevin O’Connor, the White House physician, said in a statement sent out on Sunday that the president “continues to feel well” and that he plans to continue working from the executive mansion while he separates himself from the public. The message referred to the positive test result.
As a result of Biden’s positive test results on Saturday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have instructed him to be isolated for at least five days, during which time he must cancel any travel plans and in-person activities.
Paxlovid, an anti-viral medication, was prescribed to Biden, 79, after he tested positive for the virus for the first time on July 21. This past Tuesday and Wednesday, he had negative test results for the virus, which gave him the green light to leave isolation while continuing to wear a mask indoors.
According to the findings of several studies, only a portion of those who were given Paxlovid ended up developing a rebound case of the virus.
According to Dr. Albert Ho, an infectious disease specialist at the school of public health at Yale University, “the fact that the president has cleared his illness and doesn’t have symptoms is a good sign and makes it less likely that he will develop long COVID.”
“Long Covid,” also known as post-Covid syndrome, is a relatively new illness that has garnered significant attention from the media and, more recently, support from the federal government. The National Institutes have approved a project with a budget of $1.15 billion of Health to study the “prolonged health implications” of Covid-19 infection. The announcement was made one month ago.
The subject is deserving of in-depth research. Some people, who recovered from a coronavirus infection, continue to have symptoms even years after the initial illness. These symptoms may result from a mental state or a medical sickness unrelated to the initial condition. Loud patient activism organizations are responsible for the introduction of Long Covid. It runs the danger of worsening the symptoms if given legitimacy and financed.
