Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro was seen removing his face mask at a public event after his wife tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday (July 30), and the spread of the novel coronavirus showed no signs of slowing in the country with the world’s second-worst outbreak after the United States.
Just days after her husband said he had overcome the virus with a negative test following weeks in quarantine, Bolsonaro’s wife Michelle has tested positive, the presidential office said in a statement.
“First lady Michelle Bolsonaro tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday. She is in good health and will follow all established protocols,” it said, referring to the disease caused by the new coronavirus.
Their infections are a palpable sign of the scale of the outbreak in Brazil, which set fresh daily records on Wednesday (July 29) for new COVID-19 cases and related fatalities.
The 69,074 new confirmed cases and 1,595 additional deaths reported by the Health Ministry, pushed the country past 2.5 million infections and 90,000 killed.
Pontes made his announcement on Facebook, saying he was quarantining and working remotely. (Reuters)
Researchers with the State University of Rio de Janeiro (UERJ) are tracking the spread of the novel coronavirus through one city neighbourhood by monitoring the community’s air and sewage for signs of the highly contagious virus.
The researchers set up monitors to detect the coronavirus near open sewers. Waste water can contain traces of coronavirus if community members are infected, and researchers are also testing the air around the sewers to determine whether the fine spray given off by the flowing water contains any coronavirus.
The Santa Marta favela, or low-income neighbourhood, like many Brazilian favelas, suffers from poor infrastructure.
Brazil has the world’s worst coronavirus outbreak outside of the United States and it registered an additional 555 deaths attributable to the novel coronavirus over the last 24 hours and another 24,578 confirmed cases, the health ministry said on Sunday (July 26).
The South American nation has now registered 87,004 deaths and 2,419,091 total confirmed cases. (Reuters)
Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has had another positive result for the novel coronavirus in the third test he has taken since falling ill on July 7, a secretariat of the Communications Ministry said on Wednesday (July 22).
“The test carried out on the president yesterday, on the 21st, showed a positive result,” a statement said. “President Bolsonaro is still in good condition, accompanied by the presidency’s medical team,” it added.
Bolsonaro, a former army captain, first announced his diagnosis on July 7 after dismissing the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, calling it a “little flu” even as Brazil’s outbreak became the worst in the world outside the United States.
He played down the country’s mounting death toll – now over 81,000, and more 2 million confirmed cases – and said his good physical condition would prevent him from developing serious symptoms if he got ill.
Bolsonaro has also sidelined medical experts in Brazil’s handling of the pandemic, pushed back against state and city lockdowns and circulated often in public without a mask, drawing criticism from public health specialists.
He has also said he was taking the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine, an unproven COVID-19 treatment that he and U.S. President Donald Trump have touted as a remedy for the coronavirus. (Reuters)
