Brazilian President again tests positive for COVID -19 



Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has again tested positive for COVID-19, the country’s Communications Ministry said on Wednesday.

However, a statement released by the ministry through email said Bolsonaro, 65, was in good health.‎

“Bolsonaro has no fever and his breathing, heartbeat and blood pressure are normal,’’ CNN Brazil reported, quoting the email.

‎It was the third positive test result for the far-right populist President, who, for months, downplayed the severity of the coronavirus pandemic.

He is still insisting on keeping the economy open.

Bolsonaro is currently working from his residence, and several of his ministers have also been diagnosed with COVID-19.

Brazil recorded 41,008 new coronavirus cases and 1,367 deaths in the last 24-hour count, bringing the total to nearly 2.2 million infections and 81,487 deaths.

But ‎it is believed that the real figures are far higher due to insufficient testing.

At the moment, Brazil is the country most affected by COVID-19, after the United States. ‎

The World Health Organisation recently observed that the rate of infections in the country is dropping.
