Man appears naked on Zoom call with Brazilian President amid coronavirus crisis
The incident happened when Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro was holding an online meeting with Sao Paulo Federation of Industries chief Paulo Skaf and 10 other people to discuss the impact of the pandemic in the country.
A businessman accidentally appeared naked on a Zoom call with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and 10 other people after he forgot to switch off his camera.
This embarrassing incident happened when Paulo Skaf -- the president of the Federation of Industries of the State of Sao Paulo -- held the call with Bolsaonaro and a bunch of other important people to discuss the impact of the coronavirus lockdown in Brazil.
Skaf was interrupted by the President, who asked during the conference: "Paulo, there's a colleague there in the last little square, he left, is he okay?" Bolsonaro then spotted the man taking a shower having left his webcam switched on.
After the few seconds, the MInsuter of Industry, Paulo Guedes, realised what was actually going on. "There is a guy having a shower there, naked. There's a naked guy there, isolating naked at home, great. The guy was getting hot with the conversation, so he went to take a cold shower."
Bolsonaro reportedly added: “Unfortunately we saw. It was a shaky picture but we saw.”
The man is said to be an advisor for the industry federation. Following the incident, a screengrab of the conference was circulated on social media.
Bolsonaro has been criticised for his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, with Brazil the worst-hit country in Latin America. He is against any social distancing and social isolation.
Brazil’s Health Ministry figures released on Sunday evening showed that 7,938 new cases were recorded in the past 24 hours, bringing the total above 241,000, while the death toll increased by 485 to 16,118.
