Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has again tested positive for coronavirus, he told reporters on Wednesday in Brasilia, according to Reuters.

Bolsonaro told reporters last week that he had tested positive for COVID-19. Since catching the virus, the President has said he remains in good health and he would resume his normal work schedule if he tested negative this week.

On Wednesday he said he would get tested again in a few days.

Bolsonaro underwent two previous coronavirus tests after his communications secretary Fabio Wajngarten tested positive. Both of Bolsonaro’s tests came back negative.

After he underwent the first test, Bolsonaro denied having tested positive for coronavirus, disputing reports in local media he had tested positive.
