Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has announced that he has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Bolsonaro said he was tested after developing symptoms including a high fever.

According to Fox News:

The embattled right-leaning leader revealed Monday night he had undergone testing for COVID-19 after developing symptoms, including a high fever.

“I’m well, normal. I even want to take a walk around here, but I can’t due to medical recommendations,” Bolsonaro, donning a mask after repeatedly forgoing one in the past, said at a news conference.

Bolsonaro attended a Fourth of July party at the U.S. Embassy in Brasilia, hosted by U.S. Ambassador Todd Chapman last week.

Chapman, who was photographed with Bolsonaro– both maskless– says he does not have any symptoms but will get tested, according to reports by the Washington Post.

Brazil is the second hardest-hit country in the world behind the United States. Bolsonaro has been known to downplay the virus and has fought back against wearing a mask.

  1. Its the flue get it get over it and move along,if your old and or sickly stay home and accept no visitors,especially grand kids.

  2. And? Probably one of the millions of false positives.
    Or, so what? Does it mean he will get sick?

  3. AND????……SO WHAT!! WHY is ‘Trump Train News’ spreading FAKE NEWS!!! Based on SCIENCE……..the FACTS ARE that if you’ve had a Flu shot, the flu, OR EVEN A COLD in the past TEN YEARS that one will most likely ‘test’ positive!! This NOTHING ‘Big, Bad Virus’ has been around since 2013. It was CREATED, ILLEGALLY (and Patented) by none other than THE CDC!! We HUMANS walk around with (LITERALLY) BILLIONS) of viruses in us!! And THEN, of course, we have the FACT that 80+% of these FAKE tests give a False Positive!
    Hey, ‘Trump Train News’?…….how about start reporting REAL NEWS!!! Like, Fauci is a FRAUD and needs to be in PRISON! Along with his Puppet Master EVIL Bill Gates!

  4. Interesting how the two most populist nations in the world just happen to also be the two worst hit by this virus. But of course, the more you test the higher the number of cases you’ll find but the majority of those cases will not come to fruition and the majority of that majority will never die. So let’s get on with life and stop the panicking. It’s all become so tiring.
