Front page of El País: 'Bolsonaro gets contaminated, but minimizes pandemic'

The front page of the newspaper El País on Wednesday, July 8, highlights the president of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, taking off his mask after revealing to the press that he tested positive for Coronavirus. The publication recalls the politician’s historical criticism of the pandemic, and that he continues to minimize the power of contamination even after contagion.

He said the disease does not affect young people, and almost 100% of cases are from people who already had a history of health problems.

In the last few days, Bolsonaro walked the streets of Araguari (Minas Gerais) without a mask and hugged children.
