As per a medical bulletin released by the Vila Nova Star Hospital in Sao Paulo, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro was stable but not expected to be freed after being hospitalised on Monday due to an intestinal blockage.
Bolsonaro was admitted owing to a partial intestinal blockage, according to the bulletin, and was stable and able to be evaluated by his doctor, Antonio Luiz Macedo, and his team, with no "anticipated discharge" for the time being. Bolsonaro wrote on Twitter, "More tests will be done for a potential operation for internal obstruction in the abdominal region."
While in the state of Santa Catarina, where he had celebrated the New Year, the Brazilian President began to feel sick after lunch on Sunday.
He also said that this was his second hospitalisation with the same symptoms as a result of a knife assault during his election campaign in 2018, for which he had four operations since then.
