“I knew that one day I would get infected, unfortunately, I think that almost all of you will get infected someday,” he said. Bolsonaro stressed that he was at risk, and also expressed regret about the deaths due to the coronavirus. “People die every day for a number of reasons, this is life,” he concluded.
Bolsonaro reported the virus infection on 7 July. Then he himself discovered the first symptoms of the disease. On July 25, the President of Brazil spoke about his recovery.
