Brazil's President Jair Bolsonaro announced on July 7 that he had tested positive for coronavirus. But Bolsonaro said he was feeling "perfectly well" and had only mild symptoms. The far right leader has caused huge controversy in Brazil for repeatedly flouting containment measures and minimizing the risk of the virus. The deadly virus has killed 65,000 people in the South American giant and infected 1.6 million. The test "has come out and it's positive," President Bolsonaro said in a television interview from his residence in capital Brasilia. Bolsonaro added that he was taking hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin to treat the illness. He said, “Life goes on. We're going to take care, particularly of old people and those with illnesses that are a risk factor.” Since the beginning of the virus outbreak, President Bolsonaro has minimised the risks of what he initially called "a little flu.” He flouted social distancing rules & containment measures, such as wearing a mask in public. Brazil is the second worst-hit country in the world after the United States.
