US President Joe Biden tested negative for Covid-19 on Saturday, days after he suffered a second bout of the disease.
“The president is still feeling really good,” Biden’s doctor Kevin O’Connor said in a statement. “This morning, his SARS-CoV-2 antigen test was negative.”
Biden, who at 79 is the oldest person to hold the US presidency, was quarantined for the past week after testing positive for the virus following an initial recovery in what is known as a “rebound” case.
O’Connor said Biden will continue to isolate pending a second negative test “in an abundance of caution”.
According to Biden’s official schedule, he will travel Monday to the southern state of Kentucky, the scene of devastating flooding.
