A few hours before announcing he was sick, Bolsonaro was wearing a mask when he greeted his supporters in the Presidential Palace's garden. After reporting the symptoms, he canceled his schedule for the week.
This is the fourth test that Bolsonaro has undergone since the beginning of the health crisis. He performed the three previous tests under pseudonyms. According to the records, they were negative for the disease.
The Brazilian president denies the coronavirus' dangerous symptoms by conceiving it as a "slight flu." So far, however, his country has reported 1,626,071 COVID-19 cases and 65,000 deaths.
