Brazil's President Jair Bolsonaro tests positive for coronavirus | DW News

Brazil's President Jair Bolsonaro has said in an interview that his latest coronavirus test came back positive.
Jair Bolsonaro told reporters in Brasilia on Tuesday that he had tested positive for the novel coronavirus, after saying that he had experienced COVID-like symptoms on Monday and would submit for a test.Bolsonaro confirmed the test results while wearing a mask.
"I am well, I feel normal. In comparison to yesterday, I am very well. I am even in the mood for a walk, but i won't due to medical recommendations, but I am very well," he said, repeating that he was feeling "perfectly well" and had only mild symptoms. The Brazilian president also said he had an x-ray and that his lung "was clean." Bolsonaro had already informed supporters that he had a fever of 38 degrees and body aches and therefore decided to take a COVID-19 test on Monday. Bolsonaro said he had felt tired and at unease but that during the night, his temperature started to subside and that now he is feeling in good shape. According to Bolsonaro, he took hydroxychloroquine, a drug he has been advocating as a treatment for COVID-19. There is no scientific prove of the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine against the disease. Bolsonaro is 65-years-old, the age range considered by medical experts as a risk group.

I'm not respectable and honourable enough to wish this evil man a speedy recovery. Here's hoping his positive diagnosis allows - though his incapacitation or death - for more science-based leadership in Brazil. This man is responsible for the deaths of thousands and does not have my sympathy.

If its just a flu, nobody should cure him and let him die if the disease gets fatal. Why wearing a mask if it's just a flu? Or did he just play the anti-corona politic to impress his hipster followers?

If he recovers without getting into ICU he will probably go out and say "There is nothing to be afraid of covid19. I am 65 years old and I survived it". So for the sake of Brazillian people I hope his condition worsens .
