Brazil's Bolsonaro plays down coronavirus, calls stock market turmoil "sporadic"

MIAMI, March 10 (Reuters) - Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro on Tuesday played down the coronavirus outbreak, and said that the resulting turmoil in financial markets - Brazilian stocks had their biggest fall on Monday since 1998 - is “sporadic” and not a crisis.

Speaking in Miami during a visit to the United States, Bolsonaro also said that U.S. President Donald Trump is prepared to negotiate some form of free trade agreement with Brazil. (Reporting by Lisandra Paraguassu Writing by Jamie McGeever Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
