Los casos de coronavirus se incrementan agudamente en América Latina

July 8, 2020 - América Latina y el Caribe tienen ahora el 50 por ciento de los casos de coronavirus en el continente americano, y el número de infecciones sigue acelerándose, según la Organización Mundial de la Salud

Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro said Tuesday he has tested positive for Covid-19 after months of downplaying the severity of the pandemic.

The 65-year-old right-wing populist who has been known to mingle in crowds without covering his face confirmed the results while wearing a mask and speaking to reporters huddled close in front of him in the capital, Brasilia.

He said he is taking hydroxychloroquine, the anti-malaria drug that he, like U.S. President Donald Trump, has been promoting even though it has not been proven effective against Covid-19.

Brazil, which has the second highest number of deaths in the world after the United States, accounts for more than half of Latin America’s coronavirus cases.
