Trump doesn’t need to be tested after meeting with Bolsonaro, says White House

The American president rubbed shoulders with an adviser to the Brazilian president last weekend, carrying the virus.

The White House said on Thursday that there was no justification “at this stage” for a coronavirus test for Donald Trump, who rubbed shoulders with an adviser to Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro carrying the virus.

“The president and vice-president (Mike Pence) have had virtually no interaction with the counselor who tested positive and need not be tested at this point,” said spokesperson Stephanie Grisham of the American executive.

Fabio Wajngarten, head of Jair Bolsonaro’s press service, was present during a meeting between the two leaders last Saturday in Mar-a-Lago, Florida. He posted on his Instagram account a photo of him standing just to the left of the President.
