Brazil ian minister tests positive for Covid after meeting maskless Johnson

Marcelo Queiroga sat close to Boris Johnson and Liz Truss at New York meeting

Despite the fact Bolsonaro publicly claims not to have been vaccinated against Covid, Johnson, Truss and other members of the British delegation were not wearing masks for the encounter, although Queiroga, who sat opposite the British politicians on a sofa, did use one.

Hours after the meeting, Queiroga was caught on camera making obscene hand gestures to Brazilian protesters who had taken to the streets of New York to denounce Bolsonaro’s anti-science handling of the Covid outbreak, which has killed nearly 600,000 Brazilians.

The following day Queiroga, who was reportedly staying at the same hotel as the US president, Joe Biden, wasat the UN headquartersfor the opening session of its general assembly. He reportedly took part in meetings with the UN secretary general, António Guterres, and Poland’s president, Andrzej Duda. headtopics.com

Queiroga was vaccinated against Covid in January, two months before being made health minister, and shared a video of the moment on Twitter.Other members of Bolsonaro’s cabinet have been more discreet about getting their shots. In April one senior minister, Luiz Eduardo Ramos, claimed he had snuck off to a shopping mall in the capital, Brasília, to be jabbed, apparently in order to avoid offending the president.

In a leaked video message, Ramos said: “Like any human being, I want to live. I have two wonderful grandkids, a beautiful wife, I still have dreams. So I want to carry on living.”Bolsonaro, who has dismissed Covid as a “little flu”, used his speech to the UN assembly to attack lockdown and isolation measures, which he falsely claimed caused inflation, and to tout ineffective and potentially harmful coronavirus “remedies”, known in Brazil as “early treatment”.

So even if you’ve had Covid and have been vaccinated, you propose masks should be on permanently forever and ever. Pretty scary publication you are It's 'hapless', not 'maskless' So? He was using mask, and vaccineted. Then...🤦🏽‍♂️ The UK is spreading the virus then. What a surprise, isn’t it? I remember all of you that your prime minister met Bolsonaro and his team without wearing a mask. Congrats to all… very smart! Ironic mood.

Tory governance makes people sick? Yup, that’s a thing eh? BolsonaroGenocida Oh, shot. Johnson's mask wouldn't have protected him. A mask worn by the Brazilian minister would have, at least to some extent. Too many people think wearing a mask protects them - it doesn't, it protects others. Probably why Tory MPs don't wear them. Anyway JohnsonOut

He & Biden are wearing masks one minute & off the next, not even consistent for the cameras.... And was he the only one not wearing a mask.. 🤔 Does that mean he was contaminated by Boris Johnson? Existe alguna relación entre no usar mascarilla, entrevistarse con Johnson, y haber obtenido un resultado positivo en Covid? PrensaBasura 🗑

Sorry

Boris Johnson buoyed by relaxation of COVID travel rules ahead of White House meetingIt has been just three months since the Prime Minister and the President last met at the G7 in Cornwall - but much has happened in that time. I still think that picture looks very like a senior police officer finally extending the hand of the law (and in this case, justice) to arrest an exposed, guilt-riddled criminal. Would that it were.
