Coronavirus: Brazil President Bolsonaro tests positive for COVID-19 a 2nd time

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro revealed on Wednesday evening that he’s tested positive for COVID-19 for a second time, suggesting he has yet to recover from the infection which was first diagnosed earlier in July.

Bolsonaro, a former army captain, first announced his diagnosis on July 7 after dismissing the severity of the COVID-19, even as Brazil’s outbreak became the worst in the world outside the United States.

The president said he’s in good health and plans to resume his normal work schedule as soon as he tests negative for the virus.

“I hope that in the coming days I will do another test and, God willing, everything will be all right to return soon to activity,” he said.

He also claimed to be taking the anti-malarial drug Hydroxychloroquine, an unproven treatment that both he and U.S. President Donald Trump have touted a remedy for symptoms of the coronavirus.
