Brazil’s president Jair Bolsonaro tested negative for COVID-19 Saturday, he said in a message posted to Twitter.
“BOM DIA A TODOS” — “Good morning, everyone” — he wrote with a photo of himself at the breakfast table, grinning over a packet of hydroxychloroquine.
The populist president has credited the anti-malarial drug for speeding his recovery.
Bolsonaro has been under quarantine at the Palácio da Alvorada, the official presidential home in Brasilia, since July 7 — an ordeal he has bemoaned regularly.
“I can’t stand this routine of staying at home. It’s horrible,” he said after his first six days of torment.
Brazil has been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic, posting a one-day record of 67,860 confirmed cases on Wednesday and more than 2.3 million cases overall.
