(Brasilia) Brazilian President Jair Bolzano, who suffered from intestinal obstruction, was admitted to Sao Paulo Hospital on Wednesday, where he will receive “early” “conservative medical treatment,” according to the latest medical bulletin, which currently excludes emergency surgery.
“After medical, laboratory and imaging tests, the president will initially be in the hospital for conservative medical treatment,” the medical committee of the private Vila Nova Star Hospital said in a statement.
Earlier in the day, a press release from the presidency referred to “additional choices to assess the need for emergency surgery.”
After being admitted overnight to the Armed Forces Hospital in Brasilia for a hiccup that lasted more than ten days, the head of state was taken by ambulance to the Vila Nova Store by ambulance to the Congolese airport in S பாo Paulo in the afternoon.
In Brasilia, he was hospitalized in an intensive care unit and “entered as a precaution,” his son Senator Flavio Bolzano told the radio.
The far-right leader talked about his hiccup issues last week.
“I have had hiccups for five days. It happened to me before, maybe because of the medication I take, and I have hiccups 24 hours a day, ”he revealed during his weekly Facebook feed last Thursday.
Since being stabbed in September 2018, during the presidential election campaign, Mr. Bolzano performed six surgeries on his digestive system, including five.
The perpetrator of the attack, former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva’s Labor Party (PD) dissident Socialist and Freedom Party (PSOL), is currently being held in the psychiatric ward of the High Security Prison.
“One more challenge”
Jair Bolzano maintains that the assassination attempt was planned and had political support, reiterating it in a tweet on Thursday about his medical condition.
“One more challenge, as a result of the assassination attempt by a former PSOL activist, the left wing of the BJP, to prevent the victory of the millions of Brazilians who wanted change for Brazil. It is a vicious attack not only against me but also against our democracy,” he wrote.
As of July 2020, he was diagnosed with COVID-19, but only had mild symptoms and did not need to be hospitalized.
The Brazilian president’s new hospital comes amid a political crisis and an erosion of his reputation, amid allegations of corruption in contracts his government negotiated to deal with the epidemic, which has already killed nearly 540,000 people in the country.
In addition, the Senate panel, which has been investigating his government’s administration over the health crisis for nearly three months, has now been extended to 90 days.
Recent polls leading up to the 2022 election show that Jair Bolsanaro will most likely be defeated by former President Lula.
