Brazil’s Virus Denier Bolsonaro Tests Positive Yet Again

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has had another positive result for coronavirus. Its the third test he has taken since falling ill on July 7th.

“The test carried out on the president yesterday, on the 21st, showed a positive result,” a statement said.

“President Bolsonaro is still in good condition, accompanied by the presidency’s medical team,” it added.


With 2.098 million confirmed cases and 79,488 deaths, as of July 20, Brazil’s Covid-19 catastrophe is the world’s second worst, after the United States.

In early April, as coronavirus deaths spiralled in Europe and in the US, Brazil’s president, Jair Bolsonaro, downplayed the crisis, saying the new virus was nothing but a “little flu” that has to be faced “realistically”. “That’s life,” he said. “We’re all going to die someday.”
