Bolsonaro tests negative for COVID-19 after quarantine

Bolsonaro tests negative for COVID-19 after quarantine”

Bolsonaro tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, three times over the past two weeks, including the initial diagnosis on July 7.

The far-right leader, who is himself now infected with the virus, has downplayed the pandemic even as it has exploded in Brazil, the country with the most infections and deaths from Covid-19 anywhere in the world except the United States.

The Brazilian courts previously passed a bill known as the "Brazilian Law on Freedom, Responsibility and Transparency on the Internet" that was aimed at combatting so-called fake news propagated by supporters of President Jair Bolsonaro.

He did not say when he took the latest test.

Bolsonaro also posted a photo of himself with a box of the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine, although it has not been proven effective against the virus. On Wednesday, he had tested positive for the third time.

Since then he has been in partial isolation at the presidential residence, filling his official agenda with videoconferences.

On Saturday morning, shortly after sharing the new results, the controversial leader went on a motorcycle ride on the streets of the capital Brasília. On the way out, he took pictures with people nearby, removed his mask and put on his helmet.

Brazil, Latin America's largest nation, is one of the outbreak's epicenters.

Poder360 said the president's approval rating was 52 per cent among beneficiaries of the government's monthly coronavirus emergency relief checks of 600 reals (115 US dollars), which aim to help poor Brazilians suffering the economic impact of coronavirus stay-at-home measures. The country has over 2,343,000 confirmed cases, but the real numbers are believed to be higher.

According to the Brazilian newspaper O Globo, Bolsonaro told reporters that his COVID-19 case was asymptomatic.

Bolsonaro's administration last week completed two months without a health minister.

He took over after his predecessor, a doctor and health care consultant, quit in protest over Bolsonaro's support for the use of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine, as a treatment for COVID-19.
