However, Bolsonaro’s son Eduardo, said that the test results have yet to come in.

Bolsonaro’s test results come after White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, who has been tasked with leading the administration’s response to coronavirus, had little contact with Wajngarten.

“The White House is aware of public reports that a member of the Brazilian delegation’s visit to Mar-a-Lago last weekend tested positive for COVID-19; confirmatory testing is pending,” Grisham said in a statement on Thursday. “Exposures from the case are being assessed, which will dictate next steps. Both the President and Vice President had almost no interactions with the individual who tested positive and do not require being tested at this time.”

“As stated before, the White House Medical Unit and the United States Secret Service has been working closely with various agencies to ensure every precaution is taken to keep the First & Second Families, and all White House staff healthy,” she added. “To reiterate CDC guidelines, there is currently no indication to test patients without symptoms, and only people with prolonged close exposure to confirmed positive cases should self-quarantine.”

President Trump was asked about Wajngarten’s diagnosis at the White House on Thursday.

“I’m not concerned at all,” the president said. “We had dinner together in Florida, at Mar-a-Lago, with the entire delegation,” he added. “I don’t know if the press aide was there, if he was there, he was there. But we did nothing very unusual.”
