‘Apart from the discomfort, I’m fine’, said the presenter who needed to be absent from ‘Mais Você’
the presenter Ana Maria Braga tested positive for the Covid-19 this Monday, 5. The news was given by the reporter Fabricio Battaglini, who had to take charge of Globo’s morning show. “Early today, when she [Ana Maria] was taking the Covid test, which we have to do here at Globo twice a week, it was positive. Ana is fine, the symptoms are mild, she had a sore throat, she’s a little tired, but she’s fine and she’s hospitalized”, said Fabricio at the opening of the program. On social networks, Ana Maria, who is 72, also spoke to calm viewers and emphasized that she has already taken the two doses of vaccine against the coronavirus: “Yes, I tested positive for Covid-19. I had already taken both doses [da vacina]. I had flu symptoms since Thursday, but this morning I lost my sense of smell. Apart from the discomfort, I’m fine. Thank you for all your affection! I’m not in the program for everyone’s well-being and health”. In the program on April 19 this year, Ana Maria showed images of her taking the second dose of the vaccine at a health center in the Butantã neighborhood, in São Paulo. The presenter ended up in the most talked about topics on Twitter after being diagnosed with the disease and is getting a lot of support from fans. In “Mais Você”, Fabricio announced that a doctor was invited to explain why a person can test positive for the disease even after having taken two doses of the immunizing agent.
Yes, I tested positive for COVID-19. I had already taken both doses. I had flu symptoms since Thursday, but this morning I lost my sense of smell.
Apart from the discomfort, I’m fine. Thank you for all your affection! I’m not on the program for everyone’s well-being and health!
