Brazil is the second most-hit country by coronavirus and to prove its rank, its President now tests positive. Mr. Jair Bolsonaro is 65 years old but he said there’s no need to fear because that’s life.

The news officially came yesterday in his live announcement on television. Jair Bolsonaro, the Brazilian president is also reported to have lunchtime with a small group of reporters outside his official residence, wearing a facemask. He told them ‘It came back positive.’

Brazilian president repeatedly trivialize the pandemic

If you closely follow world news, you should remember how this man reacted to the deadly virus since the beginning of the outbreak.

Jair Bolsonaro has many times trivialized coronavirus and slammed social distancing recommendations from health officials. He also fired the Brazilian Health Minister after their clashes over the pandemic response.

Despite the worldwide recognition of social distancing and facemasks in curbing the spread of virus, Bolsonaro continued to attend public events without wearing mask properly.

And now, Brazil is the second worst-hit country by coronavirus with over 1.6 million confirmed cases and 65K deaths. The images of Brazilian mass-grave for Covid-19 patients reflect the tragedy happening in this country led by an indifferent president.

Jair Bolsonaro’s reactions after testing positive

Even more shocking is the reaction of this Brazilian president after knowing he’s positive.

During his lunchtime with some hand-picked reporters, Bolsonaro shared that “There’s no reason for fear. That’s life.”

While everyone is worrying about his health, the 65-year-old president continued:

“Life goes on. I thank God for my life and the role I’ve been given to decide the future of this great nation that is called Brazil.”

But Brazilians may not thank him for leading the country to this scenario.

Jair Bolsonaro developed symptoms of coronavirus since Saturday night after meeting the US ambassador. He felt tired the entire weekend and suffered from constant cough on Monday. The president’s lungs were scanned, informed ‘clear’ by himself.

Of course, Jair Bolsonaro would be assigned thorough treatment from leading health experts in the country. However, many residents here are facing fatal conditions owing to his trivialization of the pandemic.

Starbiz.com hopes everyone would be more careful in avoiding this virus. As we can see, many governors in the world have contracted coronavirus and some couldn’t make it. Please wear masks and practice social distancing to protect yourself and others.
