The Brazilian government has submitted to the Supreme Court the diagnostic tests that the country’s president, Jair Bolsonaro, has carried out in recent months to determine whether he has been infected with the coronavirus, which the Brazilian authorities say has tested negative.
Bolsonaro has undergone two Covid-19 tests after confirming that some people in his area had the disease, despite the government’s assurance that the result was negative in both cases.
“O Estado de Sao Paulo” demanded the publication of these results, which the government refused, which is why the Brazilian newspaper appealed to the judiciary, which in higher cases gave the reason, not the High Court Justice, so the case reached the colonel.
As part of the trial, the government sent the Bolsonaro tests to judge Ricardo Lewandowski late Tuesday, but emphasized their personal nature. “The data confirm that the President was negative,” said the Union’s Advocate General (AGU) in a statement.
