Karine Jean-Pierre says Biden still has ‘persisting signs’ after doctor says he ‘feels fine’


The White House said on Monday that President Joe Biden still had delicate “lingering signs,” but tried not to specify what they were following the president’s second round of covid, as he continued his twelfth day. of isolation.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre made the remark after White House physician Dr Kevin O’Connor said in a letter that Biden continues to ‘feel really well’ ‘ after battling a rebounding case of the virus shortly after testing negative.

‘No recurring signs – which means that when you take a look at [O’Connor’s] authentic letter, there is nothing. Nothing extreme, right? Because it feels high quality. He feels he feels good.

“But as we all know, we’ve all had COVID, we have a bit of a persistent cough, a bit of a persistent sniffle maybe. It’s not unusual, so that’s what we’re talking about,” she said, without specifying the exact nature of the president’s illnesses.

“A lot of us had COVID before they were usually persistent signs and that’s what I’m talking about,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Monday. going over some details about the signs the president is experiencing after his ‘rebound’ case of covid

He seems to be doing better than he followed his authentic prognosis last month. During Biden’s first round, “we had talked about a little fatigue, we had talked about aches, we realize that there was a little discomfort”. It didn’t happen,” she said.

Jean-Pierre continued to talk about the real nature of what the president was doing, while triggering minor signs.

“And there are, you realize, you still have a dry cough, you still have sniffles that last a little longer,” she said.

“A lot of us had COVID before they were usually persistent signs and that’s what I’m talking about,” she said, speaking to a press corps who, like many of countries, has seen a string of covid cases across the pandemic.

Pressed on whether Biden was still going through some things, she said “after all” he was – after which pointed to Biden’s powerful dry cough, which continued his positive covid ratings.

Jean-Pierre acknowledged that the president was experiencing “persistent signs”

She said Biden would continue to follow Centers for Disease Control advice, which calls for five days of self-isolation after a constructive covid test.

But she noted there were no official travel indicators for someone who has a “rebound” case from a current covid case.

“There, there is no suggestion from the CDC regarding travel for the rebound. So that doesn’t exist for rebound cases,” she said, as the president seeks to get back on the road.

She also pushed back against questions about whether the president had too busy a schedule despite battling covid, and defended medical staff’s decision to provide President Paxlovid, who has been linked to return cases in a minority of cases.

“He tends to have a dry cough. It’s commonplace,” she said. Biden continues to work, but Jean-Pierre did not immediately provide details on his actions, while teasing an update later.

“He works over eight hours a day. It’s a schedule he continues to stick to,” she said.

A White House spokesperson, asked what signs the president is currently having trouble, “appeared to check for a runny nostril and a cough, pointing to Jean-Pierre’s claim that “there are [symptoms], you realize, you still have a dry cough. You still have, you realize, a bit of sniffling that lasts a bit longer.

Jean-Pierre spoke after the President’s doctor confirmed he still tested positive for COVID on Monday morning and could continue his strict isolation, even though the President “continues to feel well”.

Biden has not left the White House for 12 days after suffering a rebound case on Saturday that is believed to have been triggered by his Paxlovid therapy routine.

White House physician ‎Dr. Kevin O’Connor said Biden is still feeling fine and showing no signs.

The president has no public appearances on his schedule Monday. In his place, the White House press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, will be passing reporters.

“The President continues to feel great as he begins his week,” O’Connor wrote. “Given his rebound positivity that we reported on Saturday, we continued monitoring each day. This morning, as expected, his SARS-CoV-2 antigen test remained constructive.

O’Connor said Biden would continue to work from the White House. He also explained that the president’s constructive test was “expected” given the people involved in his position.

The President will proceed with his strict isolation measures as previously described.

According to O’Connor, “He will conduct the business of the American people from the executive residence.” O’Connor wrote that Biden “continues to be very particularly conscientious in protecting any of the Executive Residence, the White House, the Secret Service and other workers whose duties require closeness (albeit socially distant ) with him”.

That means Biden will continue to avoid the West Wing, where aides conduct official business.

It all comes at a critical time in Washington, where Biden is eyeing up media victories while avoiding sitting down with lawmakers.

West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin (D), who spent months instantly negotiating with Biden, announced last week that he had taken care of Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer on a package deal that raises 739 billion in revenue, with $433 billion in expenditure. local weather and different measures, and about $300 billion in deficit reduction.

But Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Arizona), whose vote could be key to passage, need only deliver the “reconciliation” proposal, which is protected from Republican filibuster, a soft inexperienced.

And House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is touring Asia, with aggressive statements from Beijing about the experiences she plans to go to Taiwan.

The president had tested negative for COVID-19 4 days in a row after being infected last month. But medical consultants insist his rebound case, while rare, is not entirely uncommon.

He tested positive on Saturday and returned to solitary confinement. Officials said he had six close contacts before the positive hit.

Doctors have noted that some people in higher danger classes who are manipulated with Paxlovid, like Biden was, are susceptible to “rebounding” infections.

First daughter Jill Biden remains at the family home in Wilmington, Delaware, and has tested negative.

Biden had planned to meet her on Sunday before receiving her “rebound” case.
