Brazilian president, Jair Bolsonaro, has announced that he has tested positive for COVID-19.
The president said he is perfectly well and has only mild symptoms.
He said to journalists on Tuesday, June 7:
”I’m well, normal. I even want to take a walk around here, but I can’t due to medical recommendations.”
”I can’t get very close,’ ‘I came from the hospital. I underwent a lung scan. The lung’s clean.”
The test was his fourth Coronavirus test, as he has tested negative for COVID-19 thrice in March after meeting with Donald Trump, the US president in Florida.
However, President Bolsonaro has been criticized for his response to the COVID-19 outbreak in Brazil.
Brazil has more than 1.6 million confirmed cases of Coronavirus and over 65,000 deaths.
