Jair Bolsonaro just can not rest.
After his coronavirus diagnosis and subsequent quarantine, which he previously described as “terrible”, the Brazilian president admitted on Thursday that he now has “mold” in his lungs.
I just did a blood test. I was feeling a kind of weakness yesterday. They found an infection as well. “Now I’m on antibiotics,” Bolsonaro said in a livestream video. He did not elaborate on the specifics of his condition.
“After 20 days inside, I have other problems: I have mold in my lungs,” he added.
Bolsonaro tested negative for COVID-19 last Saturday after an 18-day quarantine.
In addition to his health problems, Bolsonaro̵7;s wife also tested positive for the virus on Thursday – just 24 hours after speaking at a public event with her husband in Brasilia.
“She is in good health and will follow all established protocols. The first lady is being accompanied by the medical team of the Presidency of the Republic, “Bolsonaro’s office said in a statement.
During his quarantine period, the Brazilian leader was also bitten by a large, emu-like bird while walking outside his official residence.
Brazil is currently the second country hit by the coronavirus, after the United States, with 2.5 million confirmed cases and over 90,000 deaths.
Bolsonaro has been widely criticized in the country for his handling of the crisis, and in the past has sided with protesters against staying at home and quarantine orders.
