The COVID-19 virus is apparently still rebounding around the vaxxed and boosted Biden family.
According to media reports, Jill Biden, President Biden’s wife, tested positive on Wednesday in what is described as a rebound case, but fortunately, she is symptom-free.

“The first lady has experienced no reemergence of symptoms, and will remain in Delaware where she has reinitiated isolation procedures. The White House Medical Unit has conducted contact tracing and close contacts have been notified,” a spokesperson for the FLOTUS said, according to ABC News.
“The first lady — who first tested positive on Aug. 16 — received her second negative test on Sunday and joined the president in Delaware, coming out of her isolation period spent in South Carolina. She again tested negative on Tuesday…The president returned to the White House from Delaware on Wednesday morning. The first lady was supposed to accompany her husband to a Democratic National Committee event in Maryland on Thursday but will now remain isolated in Delaware,” the news outlet added.
“Jill Biden, who is double vaccinated and twice boosted, was prescribed the antiviral treatment Paxlovid, which President Biden also took after testing positive last month.”
This turn of events did not escape the notice of Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who irreverently riffed, with perhaps a more serious subtext, about the diagnosis on his Wednesday evening broadcast in the video clip embedded above.
“‘Dr. Jill’ is America’s doctor. Jill Biden — they said on ‘The View’ she should be surgeon general. And because she’s America’s doctor she’s taken at least four COVID shots, one every morning, but just like her husband, somehow she keeps getting COVID. She’s gotten the ‘Rona again — today! She tested positive today with a rebound case of the ‘Rona. Now Pfizer, which knows a lot about COVID, says rebound cases are very rare when you take their drug called Paxlovid, which you should be taking a lot. Rebound cases happen just two percent of the time.
He continued: “Now we’re not research scientists or immunologists, but two percent? Really? Well, first Tony Fauci had a rebound case while taking Paxlovid. And then Joe Biden had a rebound case. And now Dr. Jill has a rebound case. Really — two percent of the whole population, but Joe and Dr. Jill and Tony Fauci? We’re gonna wait for the second study to come out on that.”
The president, who has tested positive on a number of occasions recently and has spent much of his time in isolation, has tested negative but will wear a face mask for 10 days indoors and when others are nearby.
As Carlson alluded to, contrary to what misinformation spreader Whoopi Goldberg claimed back in March 2020, “Dr. Jill” is not a physician. She is a former English teacher who received a Ph.D. (i.e., a doctor of philosophy) in educational leadership from the University of Delaware in 2007. Presumably, all of her student loans are paid off by now.
There is some controversy in and out of academia over whether anyone other than those medically licensed to prescribe medication or do surgeries, or are trained in other healing arts through the appropriate terminal degree, should ever use the doctor title or expect others to address them in that manner.
Some media organizations still call her Dr. Biden, however.

In her personal blue-checkmark account on Twitter which is currently inactive, she refers to herself as Dr. Jill Biden. Her official FLOTUS Twitter account does not contain that title, however.
According to ABC News, “Although experts say preliminary estimates of Paxlovid rebounds are likely undercounted, White House COVID-19 Response Coordinator Dr. Ashish Jha suggested after President Biden’s Paxlovid rebound that the phenomenon may happen in 5% to 8% of patients.” The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has authorized Paxlovid under an emergency use declaration.
