Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro's communications director tested positive for the new coronavirus, just days after traveling with Bolsonaro to a meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump in Florida.

A statement from the president's communications office on Thursday said director Fabio Wajngarten's test results have come back positive, and that the presidency is adopting preventitive measures to ensure Bolsonaro's health.

Wajngarten joined Bolsonaro on a three-day trip to the U.S. and on Saturday was at the Mar-a-Lago resort, where he posted a photo of himself posing beside Trump. A video from the event also showed him standing directly behind both presidents as they addressed a crowd.
