The President of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, has been admitted this Wednesday to the Hospital of the Armed Forces of Brasilia, the capital of the country, after suffering abdominal pain, as reported by sources close to the matter.
Thus, the president has had to cancel his commitments scheduled for this day. As indicated by the Globo television network, the president she will submit there to a series of tests that have not yet been specified.
These same sources have highlighted that Bolsonaro will remain under observation for a period of between 24 and 48 hours, although he is “encouraged.” In a brief statement from the Planalto Palace, the authorities have clarified that said observation could occur outside the hospital facility, a decision that will be made taking into account its evolution.
Bolsonaro was scheduled to meet with the presidents of the Senate, Rodrigo Pacheco and the Chamber of Deputies, Arthur Lira, as well as that of the Supreme Court, Luiz Fux. Also on his agenda was a meeting of the ad hoc working group to deal with the pandemic.
