Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro waves to supporters from the Alvorada Palace in Brasilia, on Monday, the same day that two more of his Cabinet ministers were diagnosed with COVID-19.
Two government ministers in Brazil have tested positive for the coronavirus, as the country – second only to the U.S. in the number of infections – surpassed 80,000 deaths from the disease.
Citizenship Minister Onyx Lorenzoni, a close ally of President Jair Bolsonaro, and Education Minister Milton Ribeiro announced separately their diagnoses on social media.
In a tweet, Lorenzoni said he had begun feeling COVID-19 symptoms on Thursday night and had received confirmation that he was infected on Monday.
Bom dia.— Onyx Lorenzoni ???????? (@onyxlorenzoni) July 20, 2020
Quinta à noite comecei a sentir sintomas que poderiam ser da Covid.
6a passei por exames, entre eles o PCR e o resultado saiu hoje e o covid foi detectado.
Desde 6a estou seguindo o protocolo de azitromicina, ivermectina e cloroquina e já sinto os efeitos positivos. pic.twitter.com/r8KoXpIADH
