Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro undergoes another test for novel Coronavirus

After local media reports suggesting that Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro had symptoms associated with the COVID-19 respiratory disease, including a fever, Mr. Bolsonaro on Monday, July 6, said that he had undergone another test for the novel Coronavirus.

Mr. Bolsonaro told his supporters that he had visited the hospital to be tested for the virus and an exam had shown his lungs “clean”. Even as Brazil has suffered one of the worst outbreaks in the world, with more than 1.6 million confirmed cases and 65,000 related fatalities, President Bolsonaro has repeatedly played down the impact of the deadly virus.

The President had earlier tested negative for the COVID-19 after several aides were diagnosed following a visit to U.S. President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago, Florida estate in March this year.
