Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro reported Wednesday that he spoke on the phone with his US colleague Donald Trump, a day after the White House chief said that flights from Brazil may be canceled due to the pandemic of the new coronavirus.
“We exchanged information on the impact of the coronavirus, as well as experiences in the use of hydroxychloroquine. We affirm mutual solidarity between the two countries,” Bolsonaro said.
The Brazilian president and Trump agreed until a few days ago in denying social isolation as a way to combat the coronavirus, but the American, given the progress of the cases, has changed his plan.
Trump said he considers suspending flights from Brazil to try to contain the advance of the pandemic, even being considered as an ally by Bolsonaro.
The communication was attended by the Brazilian Foreign Minister Ernesto Araújo and the Secretary for Strategic Affairs, Flávio Rocha.
