Bolsonaro undergoes his third coronavirus test after some symptoms

July 7, 2020

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has gone through another test to see if he became infected with COVID-19 after showing some of his own symptoms over the weekend

In addition, despite the fact that the outcome is still unknown, he has already started taking hydroxychloroquine, the controversial drug that has been defended by the far-right president several times without legal evidence of its effectiveness.

Bolsonaro went to the Armed Forces Hospital of Brasilia on Monday for a pulmonary X-ray after showing symptoms such as 38 fever since Saturday, according to the O Globo newspaper.

When he returned to the Alvorada Palace, his acolytes, as usual, crowded nearby to greet the Brazilian president, who paused for a few moments to convey that “the lungs were clean” and to tell them that he would submit again to a test of the coronavirus, the result of which will be announced this Tuesday.
