Brazil's Bolsonaro says he may have had coronavirus despite negative test

BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazilís President Jair Bolsonaro said on Thursday that he might have contracted the novel coronavirus previously and he may do another test for the disease, having already tested negative for the virus multiple times weeks earlier.

Bolsonaro had said he tested negative twice but fought a court battle to stop the release of the hospital test results, raising questions over whether he may have been infected or not.

1. Cool! I hope it was nothing trivial. Who remembers when Bolsonaro was coughing in public?

Various news photographers caught great photos of him whooping up during public appearances, when he was trying to force citizens to forget social distancing, and wearing masks, etc., just like Trump. He had rallies to protest wearing masks, his inbred supporters showed up to drool and howl, and they all had a lot of fun making fun of sane people.

Remember Bolsonaro went to Mar-a-lago, had dinner with Trump, and, we saw this article, from 3-12-2020, among others:

A senior adviser to Brazil President Jair Bolsonaro tested positive for the novel coronavirus, just five days after he was among a group of officials who met with President Donald Trump.

Fabio Wajngarten, Bolsonaro's communications secretary, tested positive for the coronavirus and that result has been "confirmed by a retest," Bolsonaro's office said in a statement Thursday.

"The Brazilian government has already communicated the occurrence to United States government officials so that the necessary preventive measures can be adopted," the statement said.

On Friday, Bolsonaro announced he tested negative for the virus.

Wajngarten posted a photo of himself standing next to the U.S. president at Trump's Mar-A-Lago resort in Florida on Saturday.
