Governor Joao Doria said he had tested positive for the new coronavirus but would continue working from quarantine.

Governor Joao Doria, an early and vocal advocate of lockdown measures to contain the virus, is a leading opponent of far-right President Jair Bolsonaro, who regularly downplays COVID-19 and argues the economic damage business closures will be worse than the disease.

Doria, 62, said in a video posted on Twitter that he was “completely asymptomatic.”

“I just received my sixth test result for COVID-19, and unfortunately, it came back positive. I feel fine. I’m going home and will continue holding meetings remotely with all sectors of the Sao Paulo government for the next ten days.” The governor said.

Brazil has the second-highest number of coronavirus infections and deaths in the world after the United States, at more than 3.1 million and 103,000, respectively.
