Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said Tuesday that he tested positive for the coronavirus after developing mild symptoms, including a fever. He said the fever has subsided and that he's feeling "well, normal." Bolsonaro has remained one of the more notable coronavirus skeptics, often downplaying the threat of the disease. Meanwhile, Brazil has emerged as one of the pandemic's persistent hot spots. More than 65,000 people in the world's sixth most populous nation have died from COVID-19 complications, while more than 1.5 million have been infected with the virus. Those figures represent only the confirmed cases, however. Many experts believe the true toll is higher.
