Although Brazilian President Bolsonaro twice claimed that his new coronavirus test was negative, his health problems have been questioned by parties including opposition parties.
According to the British “Guardian” reported on April 15, the Brazilian Congress has issued a “ultimatum” to Bolsonaro asking him to hand over his test results within 30 days. According to reports, a motion proposed by a left-wing MP pointed out that 23 people had been diagnosed in the Brazilian delegation that accompanied Bolsonaro to the United States last month.
After Bossonaro denied that his test was positive, he refused to hand over his detailed test report. On March 13, the media reported that the Brazilian President Bolsonaro’s new coronavirus test was positive, but Bolsonaro denied it. On March 17, Bolsonaro announced that his second new coronavirus test was also negative.
Eloísa Machado, a constitutional expert at the Getúlio Vargas Foundation, a Brazilian think-tank, believes that the motion is mainly aimed at Presidential Secretary Secretary Jorge Oliveira. In the failure to hand over Bolsonaro’s test results, Oliveira will face criminal charges, and Bolsonaro will not be affected too much. Nonetheless, Bolsonaro’s right to speak in the formulation of the national epidemic policy is bound to be compromised.
Bossonaro’s epidemic prevention policy has repeatedly caused controversy and criticism. In a speech at the end of March, Bossonaro also said that even if he is really infected with the new coronavirus, at most it will only show some flu-like symptoms. The US “Washington Post” commented that Posonaro’s performance was the worst among all the leaders in the global fight against the new cornavirus crisis. “Washington Post” described that Posonaro denied the possibility of the spread of the new coronavirus. Brazil is a country with a population of more than 200 million, but Bolsonaro claims that it is just some kind of small flu, and even tries to weaken the efforts of some Brazilian governors to contain the epidemic.
According to Reuters, on the 14th, Health Minister Mandetta, who had “talked back” with Bossonaro in public, told his two assistants that Bossonaro was likely to fire him within this week.
According to the latest statistics from the website of Johns Hopkins University, Brazil has ac-cumulatively confirmed 29015 cases and 1760 deaths. On the 16th, Brazil added more than 3,000 confirmed cases in a single day, setting a record since the outbreak in the country. According to a Reuters report, Brazilian natives living in the Amazon jungle have also experienced new cases of coronavirus.
