The president of the United States, Joe Biden, will resume his usual work routine after ending his confinement this Sunday after testing negative for COVID-19 for the second consecutive day, the White House has confirmed.
“The president will safely return to his public engagements and official travel,” White House press secretary Karina Jean-Pierre said in a statement.
The case of Biden, who has the full course of the vaccine and two booster doses against the coronavirus, has served the U.S. Administration to encourage the population to get immunized.
The U.S. president tested positive for COVID-19 on July 21, although he has evolved favorably from the disease and has presented only “very mild symptoms”.
After treatment with the antiviral drug Paxlovid, he finally seemed to have overcome the disease but now suffers from a “rebound effect” that occurs in a small percentage of those who receive this drug.
