Washington – A fatigued, runny-nosed President Joe Biden entered Covid solitude on July 21 with his legislative agenda stalled, a standoff brewing with the House speaker and an unfinished plan to kill the world’s top terrorist with a drone.
More than two weeks later, Biden is deep into his second stint in isolation with his agenda suddenly revivedtensions with China dramatically ratcheted up and the terrorist dead.
The two-plus weeks Biden has spent with just his German Shepherd for company have proved some of the weightiest of his presidency, with his once-bleak legislative fortunes enjoying a surprise turnabout and his foreign policy shaken by events across the globe.
Even some White House staffers said they felt a certain degree of whiplash, and Biden himself has mused to confidants at the sudden turn of events.
“It’s been an extraordinary few days for the nation,” he told a virtual gathering of Democrats on Wednesday.
Left unsaid was how extraordinary those days had been for Biden himself, who oversaw almost all of it from the White House residence, isolating alone with only a bare-bones, in-person staff.

President Joe Biden continued to test positive for COVID-19 Friday, the day he could have ended isolation from a rebound infection, according to guidelines by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Biden, 79, tested positive for the first time July 21 and received a five-day treatment of Paxlovid, given to those at higher risk for severe illness. He tested negative on July 26 and 27, prompting him to end isolation. But three days later, on July 30, the president again tested positive and returned to isolation. Biden’s physician, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, said his symptoms hadn’t reappeared.
Rebound infections after taking Paxlovid can occur. Dr. Anthony Fauci, Biden’s chief medical adviser, experienced a similar rebound infection. Most people, however, aren’t tested as often as the president and the actual rate of rebound cases is probably around 5%, White House COVID response coordinator Dr. Ashish Jha said in a series of tweets.
