BRASILLA: Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro informed that he has tested negative for Coronavirus, two weeks after he had contracted the virus.
“RT-PCR for Sars-Cov 2: negative. Good morning everyone,” the Brazilian President Bolsonaro tweeted, along with a photo of himself smiling and holding a packet of hydroxychloroquine.
According to media reports, he took a motorcycle ride through Brasilia and visited some shops, with small crowds gathering around him.
“I didn’t feel anything, not even in the beginning. If I hadn’t taken the test, I wouldn’t have known I had the virus,” he told.
The Latin American country has registered nearly 2.3 million cases of the new coronavirus and more than 84,000 deaths.
But Bolsonaro is a fierce critic of stay-at-home measures, arguing the economic pain they result in is worse than the virus itself.
