Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro has been ordered by federal judge Renato Borelli to wear a face mask when circulating in public in Brasilia or face a $390 per day fine.

Borelli stated the president "has exposed other people to the contagion of a disease that has caused national commotion,".

The same decision also applies to all employees and contractors of the federal government in Brasilia.
