Brazillian President Jair Bolsonaro says he’s tested positive for coronavirus.
The President’s announcement comes after he told reporters he was suffering from symptoms of coronavirus, including a fever. He later told CNN Brazil reporters his lungs were “clean.”
The announcement comes after months of downplaying the pandemic. Brazil is second in worldwide infection leaders behind the U.S. and currently has had over 1.6 million residents test positive for COVID-19.
