Fabio Wajngarten, the press secretary for Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, tested positive for coronavirus on Thursday, Starcoded Media has learnt.
Bolsonaro’s health is being monitored. It comes just days after Wajngarten met US President Donald Trump in Florida.
Bolsonaro’s aide posted an image of himself standing with Trump and US Vice President Mike Pence at Mar-a-Lago over the weekend.
He was accompanying Bolsonaro on a trip to the US, during which the two leaders dined together. Earlier in the day, the pair had spoken to reporters about the coronavirus outbreak.
“I’m not concerned at all,” Trump told the press. He had been asked about his attendance at the CPAC conference, where another person was also tested positive for coronavirus.
