US President Joe Biden has tested negative for Covid-19 days after getting a second bout of the virus, his doctor says.
Mr Biden, 79, first tested positive for the virus more than two weeks ago.
He had been in isolation for a second time after getting what his doctor described as a “rebound” case.
He will continue to isolate until he has a second negative test “out of an abundance of caution”, Dr Kevin O’Connor said.

Dr O’Connor added that “the president continues to feel very well”.
Mr Biden – who is fully-vaccinated and has twice received booster jabs – first tested positive for Covid-19 on 21 July. He tested negative six days later, only to then test positive again on 30 July.
In a previous statement, Dr O’Connor said the president was taking the antiviral medicine Paxlovid, which can lead to rebounds of the virus in a small percentage of the people who take it.
The president experienced mild symptoms while he had the virus, including a runny nose and fatigue, and continued working while in isolation, the White House said.
