Biden’s COVID symptoms 'almost completely resolved,' doctor says

President Biden’s COVID-19 symptoms are almost completely resolved, his physician Kevin O’Connor said in a memorandum released by the White House on Monday. 

The president, who completed his fourth day of the antiviral Paxlovid on Sunday evening, only has residual nasal congestion and minimal hoarseness, O’Connor said. 

“His symptoms have now almost completely resolved. When questioned, at this point he only notes some residual nasal congestion and minimal hoarseness,” O’Connor wrote. “His pulse, blood pressure, respiratory rate and temperature remain absolutely normal.” 

O’Connor added that this oxygen saturation on room air is “excellent” and his lungs are clear. 

The president’s physician on Saturday said that Biden likely contracted the BA.5 variant, which makes up the majority of COVID-19 cases in the United States. At the time, Biden’s symptoms were a sore throat and body aches.
