    I have like 20k karma on Reddit..
    Of course it exists ;)

    In Bolsonaro's case, he is reaping a whirlwind he hath sown.

    Delighted for him.

    If he gets a mild version it will further back up the idiotic approach he has taken to tackling it. The man is a dumber version of Trump which in itself is incredible.

    So dumb that the gangs had to take control of the pandemic by enforcing lockdowns and hiring private ambulances in the favelas.

    Dying would actually be a good thing for Brazil and the wider covidiot world. But alas it's probably going to be some blameless person in his family who is effected the most.

    It's great craic, isn't it?

    Hopefully it serves as a stark reminder of how potentially dangerous Covid-19 can be, and revise his flippant opinion toward it. That said, wishing him a full recovery.

    I think it would be better for Brazil if he gets a scare. The man seems to lack an understanding of the virus, a mild dose will just reaffirm his beliefs.

    The only way he won't shake this off and dismiss this as a flu is if he ends up in a box. You underestimate how unapologetic a cretin like Bollocksonaro is.

    Poetic justice. Hopefully now he will work to help the population better.

    My Brazilian friend is theorising that he's faking it to promote Hydroxychloroquine.

    Well he is 65 so the chances of it being more severe are higher

    He's one of the new-right macho man leaders that are popping up everywhere so he's probably as fit as a flea (or believes he is anyway)...

    From link:
    In March, as Covid-19 claimed its first victims in Brazil, the far-right populist used an address to the nation to brag that, if infected, he would quickly shake off the illness thanks to his “athlete’s background”.

    You just know he's going to kick sand in Covid's face and be vindicated and encourage all Brazilians to do the same by mixing more and contract the virus.

    World really has poor leadership in this time of crisis.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,404 ✭✭✭ old_aussie


    Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

    Bolsonaro says Covid-19 is only a news media trick.

    No such thing as Covid-19 he says.

    The world laughs out loud.


  • Registered Users Posts: 80 ✭✭ scilover


    Serves him right. In the beginning he just brush it off as a simple flu and now he's the one who's infected. Not only that, Brazil is now the 2nd country with the most infected because of him.

    Just like the Brazilian President during the “Spanish” flu pandemic 100 years ago.

    Actually been fit and exercising can make the virus worse. So if someone thinks **** I got thf virus or is told so and then decide a sure I will go for d run or two to get rid of it that could actually make it worse.

    He got pecked on the hand while feeding an emu.

    He's still positive.
