Jair Bolsonaro is discharged from hospital after four days in hospital – World


The Brazilian president, Jair Bolsonaro, was discharged this Sunday from Vila Nova Star Hospital, in the south of the city of São Paulo, where he was hospitalized since last Wednesday due to an intestinal obstruction that caused intense pain in the abdomen. Bolsonaro, who entered that private hospital on a stretcher, left this Sunday walking, and, according to people close to him, he would immediately return to Brasília and resume his government activities this Monday.

According to the medical bulletin released by the hospital, the president will continue to be treated on an outpatient basis by a team of assistants to gastric surgeon António Macedo, who has been treating him since 2018, when the current head of state had to undergo emergency surgery after receiving a stab in the abdomen during a presidential act that year in the city of Juiz de Fora, in the state of Minas Gerais. According to Macedo, Jair Bolsonaro will be able to live a normal life, and he should only “take it easy” about the pace of work, stress and eating in the first few days.

With severe abdominal pain and a crisis of hiccups that made it difficult for him to speak, Jair Bolsonaro was taken urgently in the early hours of last Wednesday to the Armed Forces Hospital, in Brasília. Hours later, the surgeon António Macedo, who was operating in São Paulo, was rushed to the Brazilian federal capital and decided to transfer the governor to the hospital in São Paulo.

Bolsonaro made the trip in a Brazilian Air Force plane, with other planes escorting and carrying dozens of security guards and advisers, and, upon landing at the São Paulo airport, he was taken from the aircraft on a stretcher, surrounded by a cordon of bodyguards who opened huge black umbrellas so that no one could see the president, which seemed to indicate that his condition was very serious. However, hours after entering the Vila Nova Star, Bolsonaro was already walking through the corridors, talking without a mask with other patients and staff, and, contrary to what had been advanced, he did not need new surgery to remove the intestinal obstruction.

While he was hospitalized, Bolsonaro, reinforced by his children and several allies, carried out an intense political campaign on social networks, victimizing himself and attacking his main competitors in the 2022 presidential ones, publishing messages at an intense pace, and even carried out live broadcasts . In all of them, he stressed that he was suffering the consequences of the stab he received in 2018, which continues to insist that it was a political attack to prevent him from being president, despite the Federal Police having concluded that it was an isolated attack carried out by a man with mental disorders, who is still imprisoned and receiving psychiatric treatment.
