Brazil President Jair Bolsonaro Tests COVID-19 Positive

Brazil: Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro has tested positive for COVID-19. Bolsonaro confirmed the test results while wearing a mask and speaking to reporters in capital Brasilia.


“I’m well, normal. I even want to take a walk around here, but I can’t due to medical recommendations,” LiveMint reported Bolsonaro as saying. The president has often appeared in public to shake hands with supporters and mingle with crowds, at times without a mask.


Brazil, the world’s sixth most populous nation, with more than 210 million people, is one of the global hot spots of the pandemic.



Bolsonaro reportedly underwent an X-ray of his lungs that showed they were clean.


He told CNN Brasil that his fever had subsided.
