As a consequence of inequalities due to Bourgain-Brézis, we obtain local-in-time well-posedness for the two-dimensional Navier-Stokes equation with velocity bounded in spacetime and initial vorticity in bounded variation. We also obtain spacetime estimates for the magnetic field vector through improved Strichartz inequalities.
