“I just had a blood test. I felt a little weak yesterday. They also found a bit of infection. Now I’m taking antibiotics, ”Bolsonaro said in a live video. He did not give details of his condition.
“After 20 days inside, 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 her own health concerns, Bolsonaro’s wife also tested positive for the virus on 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 accompanied by the medical team of the Presidency of the Republic, ”Bolsonaro’s office said in a statement.
During his quarantine period, the Brazilian leader was also bitten by a large emu-like bird while walking past his official residence.
Brazil is currently the second most affected country by the coronavirus, after the United States, with 2.5 million confirmed cases and more than 90,000 deaths.
Bolsonaro has been widely criticized in the country for his handling of the crisis and has in the past sided with protesters against stay-at-home and quarantine orders.
