Science and Technology Minister Marcos Pontes aged 57, has announced he’s tested positive, being the fifth member of the Government to be taken ill.

Brazil has just re-opened its borders to international air travel for the first time since March. Yet, it has the second-highest infection rate in the World, with 2.5 million people infected and more than 90,000 deaths.

In the last day, President Bolsonaro attended a water supply installation inauguration in the State of Bahia, lowering his mask and shaking hands. Before COVID took its deadly grip in Brazil he had described it as: “A little flu.”
