Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro tested positive for the Coronavirus after meeting with President Trump this week; prompting officials to revisit vital protocols surrounding the health and safety of senior officials and cabinet members.
“Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro has tested positive for coronavirus, Fox News can confirm. The positive diagnosis comes just days after the right-wing Bolsonaro met with President Trump in Mar-A-Lago. In the wake of the news out of Brazil, a number of White House officials were called into an urgent meeting in the chief of staff’s office,” reports Fox News.
“Bolsonaro had been tested after one of his deputies, who was also in attendance at the Florida resort, was diagnosed with COVID-19. Fabio Wajngarten, the communications secretary for the 64-year-old Brazilian leader who had traveled to Miami for the meeting as well, showed flu symptoms and tested positive for the virus early Wednesday,” adds Fox.
