Kathmandu: US President Joe Biden has tested negative for COVID on Tuesday night, five days after first testing positive for the virus, and is set to exit isolation on Wednesday, as reported by the New York Daily News.

Biden, 79, was fever-free, had not taken Tylenol over the previous 36 hours and was experiencing minimal symptoms that have “almost completely resolved.”

New York Daily News has reported that when around others, Biden will continue wearing a mask for a complete 10 days. And the president will increase his testing frequency to protect others and to monitor any post-isolation virus flare-up, the doctor added.

The president, who is fully vaccinated and has received two booster shots, was treated with Paxlovid, an antiviral therapy.
