Jair Bolsonaro revealed on Thursday that he is taking antibiotics due to a lung infection, days after announcing that he is already cured of covid-19. The Brazilian President did not give further details regarding the infection, but he quipped, saying that he has “mold in the lung”.
“I just had a blood test because I was a little weak yesterday [quarta-feira] and they found a small infection. I am taking antibiotics because after 20 days at home, we get other problems. I got mold, mold in the lung ”, said Bolsonaro, in a live broadcast on Facebook, from the Palácio da Alvorada, in Brasília, accompanied by the Minister of Infrastructure, Tarcísio de Freitas.
On the same day that the Brazilian President revealed that he was taking antibiotics due to a lung infection, it was announced that his wife, Michelle Bolsonaro, is infected with the new coronavirus.
