BRASILIA, July 7 — Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro announced today he had tested positive for the coronavirus but 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 minimising the risk of the virus, which has killed 65,000 people in the South American giant and infected 1.6 million. — AFP
