“Bring out your Dead!”

Well thank goodness we’ll be around to do it as Bolsonaro might be indisposed for a while.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, who has sought repeatedly to minimize the coronavirus as he urges the country back to work, said Tuesday he has tested positive for covid-19.

Bolsonaro, who has been an outlier among world leaders in his skepticism of both the coronavirus and preventive measures intended to curb it, was tested Monday evening after developing symptoms that included a fever.

“There’s no problem,” he told reporters on Tuesday. “It’s natural. There’s no dread. It’s life.”

The result adds one more case to what has become the world’s second-worst coronavirus outbreak, after the United States. Brazil has reported more than 1.6 million cases and 65,000 deaths — both believed to be undercounts — an escalating disaster that scientists and health officials say has been exacerbated by Bolsonaro’s frequent dismissal of it.
