New COVID-19 test of the Chief Justice of the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF) resulted negative.


The medical team accompanying the Chief Justice of the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF), Justice Dias Toffoli, reported on Tuesday (26) that the second test conducted this week was negative for Covid-19. This was the fourth test that the Chief Justice underwent in less than a month to detect the virus (the tests were carried out on May 20th, 24th, 25th and on April 28th). All results were negative.

The Chief Justice had been admitted on Saturday (23) for a minor surgery, which went well. But he presented respiratory signs that suggested infection by the new coronavirus and, therefore, remained hospitalized for observation.

With the result announced on Tuesday, Dias Toffoli will remain on medical leave until his full recovery. During this period, the Deputy Chief Justice, Justice Luiz Fux, assumes the Presidency of the Court.
