Brazil’s president Jair Bolsonaro posted footage on July 7 in which he claimed he was taking an unproved cure previously touted by US President Donald Trump to combat his positive diagnosis for COVID-19.
Bolsonaro said he was feeling really good.
“I’m, well, normal. I even want to take a walk around here, but I can’t due to medical recommendations,” Bolsonaro said, according to a AP report on ABC.
