The health minister is part of the Brazilian delegation accompanying President Jair Bolsonaro, who delivered the opening speech to the General Assembly on Tuesday. Last week, the minister told CNN that he had been vaccinated with the Chinese-made CoronaVac vaccine.
According to reports, the infected minister met with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson just hours before his reports were made public.
Brazil’s health minister just ahead of testing positive at UNGA was recorded showing middle finger to protesters in New York City. Watch video below:
