Francis Suarez, the mayor of Miami, confirmed that he has tested positive for coronavirus.

The news of Suarez testing positive comes days he met with a Brazilian government official, who later tested positive.

“It is confirmed that I have the coronavirus,” Suarez told the Miami Herald. “I did test positive for it.”

While Suarez is feeling healthy, he is “concerned for people who have had some measure of contact with” him in recent days.

“If we did not shake hands or you did not come into contact with me if I coughed or sneezed, there is no action you need to take whatsoever,” he said. “If we did, however, touch or shake hands, or if I sneezed or coughed near you since Monday, it is recommended that you self-isolate for 14 days, but you do not need to get tested. After speaking with medical personnel, I will continue to follow Department of Health protocol and remain isolated while I lead our government remotely.”
