Michelle Bolsonaro, the wife of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro who is sick with the new coronavirus, said on Saturday that she and her two daughters had tested negative for the virus.

The president announced that he had tested positive on Tuesday, and said he was quarantining while also taking the unproven drug hydroxychloroquine.

Brazil is the world's No. 2 coronavirus hot spot after the United States, and registered 631 new deaths on Sunday, with a new total of 1,866,000 confirmed cases, the Health Ministry said.

Brazil now has an official total of 72,151 deaths, the ministry said. The numbers of deaths and cases are usually lower on the weekend because of patchy reporting. Experts say the true totals are likely far higher due to a lack of testing.
