Says he already ‘feels a lot better’.
Brazil’s president Jair Bolsonaro last night revealed he is taking hydroxychloroquine to treat his coronavirus infection and claimed it was making him ‘a lot better’.
Hours after announcing his positive test result, Bolsonaro showed off footage of himself taking a dose of the anti-malaria drug – which is touted by him and Donald Trump.
Bolsonaro was tested after suffering a fever and muscle aches, but insisted yesterday that he felt ‘perfectly well’ and credited the improvement to his doses of the drug.
‘Today I’m a lot better, so certainly it’s working. We know today there are other remedies that can help fight the coronavirus,’ said Bolsonaro, 65.
‘We know none of them have their efficacy scientifically proven, but I’m one more person for whom this is working. So I trust hydroxychloroquine. And you?’
