The President had mild symptoms during his first bout of Covid, including a runny nose, 倦怠感, high temperature and a cough, according to his doctor.
O’Connor said in his memo on Saturday that the President had not experienced a “remergence of symptoms,” and then in his memos on Sunday and Monday said Biden “continues to feel well,” but did not say whether he was experiencing any symptoms.
Biden first tested positive on July 21 and proceeded to take a five-day course of the antiviral drug Paxlovid, which requires a doctor’s prescription and is available via emergency use authorization from the US Food and Drug Administration for treatment of mild to moderate Covid-19 in people 12 and older who are at high risk of severe illness.
The CDC issued a health alert to doctors on May 24 advising that Covid-19 symptoms sometimes come back, and that may just be how the infection plays out in some people, regardless of whether they’re vaccinated or treated with medications like Paxlovid. The CDC said most cases of rebound involve mild disease and that there have been no reports of serious illness.
National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci also experienced a rebound case of Covid-19. His symptoms got worse when they returned after treatment, and his doctors prescribed another course of Paxlovid.
