THE Prime Minister branded Covid a “bummer” yesterday as he teased anti-vax Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro.
Boris Johnson used their meeting in New York to sing the praises of AstraZeneca, saying: “It’s a great vaccine.”
When Bolsonaro — who has claimed jabs can turn people into crocodiles — said he had not received his inoculation “yet”, Mr Johnson replied: “I’ve had it twice.”
The pair met at the UN where Mr Johnson also told world leaders commitments to tackle the climate crisis are “nowhere near enough”.
And he said there was a “vast” gap between the what the richest nations on the planet had pledged to save it and what they had actually coughed up in hard cash.
