Brazilian chief spokesman, traveled with Bolsonaro last Saturday to Tuesday to the United States, where the far-right leader – who has been dubbed a “Tropical Trump” – met with his US counterpart.
Wajngarten developed flu-like symptoms and tested positive for the virus that has become a global pandemic, the Brazilian presidency said in a statement.
According to Trump, he was unconcerned, and downplayed his contact with “the press aide,” apparently referring to Wajngarten.
I did hear something about that. We had dinner together in Florida, in Mar-a-Lago, with the entire delegation. I don’t know if the press aide was there. If he was there, he was there. But we did nothing very unusual.
Let me put it this way, I’m not concerned.
According to reports, Bolsonaro had also been tested for the virus.
The US embassy in Brasilia had contacted the Brazilian government for information on Wajngarten’s test.
The embassy did not immediately respond to a request for comment from AFP.
The Brazilian president’s office, said in a statement;
The Brazilian President has taken and is taking all necessary preventive measures to protect the health of the president and all staff that traveled with him to the United States.
This is because one of the officials in the group, Presidential Communications Secretary Fabio Wajngarten, is infected with the new coronavirus, COVID-19, as confirmed by a second test that was recently carried out.
After meeting with Trump, Wajngarten posted a picture of himself standing next to Trump and wearing a hat reading “Make Brazil Great Again.”
