The fact that all of these famous and high level people are getting the virus indicates to me that there is a very high correlation between people who have access to the test and people who test positive for the disease.
Fabio Wajngarten, the press secretary for Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, tested positive for coronavirus on Thursday, two sources have told CNN. 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.
Trump said he was aware of the aide’s diagnosis during remarks in the Oval Office on Thursday.
“We did nothing very unusual, we sat next to each other for a period of time,” he added, referring to Bolsonaro.
Well, Mr. President, I’m glad to hear you didn’t do something very unusual with these men. Maybe that will be your saving grace.
If you had spent the time romantically licking each other’s eyeballs, would you potentially have a much more serious outcome?
Trump’s decision to refrain from doing something very unusual with the Brazilians was another stroke of genius, and right in line with the plan.
