In the wake of the news out of Brazil, a number of White House officials were called into an urgent meeting in the chief of staff’s office,” reports Fox News.
“Bolsonaro had been tested after one of his deputies, who was also in attendance at the Florida resort, was diagnosed with COVID-19. Fabio Wajngarten, the communications secretary for the 64-year-old Brazilian leader who had traveled to Miami for the meeting as well, showed flu symptoms and tested positive for the virus early Wednesday,” adds Fox.
