(Newser) – Bolivia’s interim president, Jeanine Áñez, has tested positive for COVID-19. "I feel good, I feel strong, I will continue to work virtually from my isolation," she says in a video posted to her Twitter account, per NPR. Three cabinet ministers in her administration have also tested positive, including one who is hospitalized. Her announcement comes the same week Brazil's President Jair Bolsonaro revealed his own coronavirus diagnosis. Meanwhile, Venezuela's No. 2 leader, socialist party chief Diosdado Cabello, has also tested positive, making him the highest-ranking person in that country with the virus, the AP reports. He announced that he is in isolation and receiving treatment. (Read more coronavirus stories.)
