UPDATE: Jair Bolsonaro's son has denied reports that he tested positive and claims he tested negative:

Per Fox News:

Reports out of Brazil had initially indicated Bolsonaro had tested positive, and his son appeared to confirm this to Fox News earlier Friday, adding that further testing was being done to confirm the diagnosis and the second set of testing was expected later in the day.

However, in a subsequent appearance on "America's Newsroom," Eduardo denied his father had ever tested positive.

“I don’t have this information,” he replied. “The information I have is the results that just came up telling that he is negative for coronavirus. I never listened that it was positive in the first exam. This is something that I don’t know. But, uh, everything’s good now.”

Bolsonaro then told Smith, to his knowledge, this was his first test for the virus.

According to new reports, it appears that Brazilian President Jari Bolsonaro has tested positive for Coronavirus.

According to the reports he is now awaiting the results of a second, more accurate, test to confirm the results of the first in order to avoid a potential false negative.

Bolsonaro recently met with President Trump at Mar-a-Lago.
