Jair Bolsonaro just can’t catch a break.
Following his coronavirus diagnosis and subsequent quarantine, which he previously described as “horrible,” the Brazillian president admitted Thursday that he now has “mold” in his lungs.
“I just did a blood test. I was feeling kind of weak yesterday. They found a bit of infection also. Now I’m on antibiotics,” Bolsonaro said in a livestream video. He did not elaborate on the specifics of his condition.
“After 20 days indoors, I have other problems: I have mold in my lungs,” he added.
Bolsonaro tested negative for COVID-19 last Saturday after an 18-day quarantine.
In addition to his own health woes, Bolsonaro’s wife also tested positive for the virus Thursday — just 24 hours after speaking at a public event with her husband in Brasilia.
“She is in good health and will follow all established protocols. The first lady is being accompanied by the medical team of the Presidency of the Republic,” Bolsonaro’s office said in a statement.
During his quarantine period, the Brazillian leader was also bitten by a large, emu-like bird while on a walk outside his official residence.
Brazil is currently the second worst-hit country by the coronavirus, after the United States, with 2.5 million confirmed cases and over 90,000 deaths.
