The president of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, was discharged this Sunday, after spending four days in hospital for severe abdominal pain and an attack of hiccups. The president entered the Vila Nova Star hospital last Wednesday, July 14, after being transferred from a medical center in Brasilia. The medical team even considered the possibility of performing an emergency surgical intervention to treat the “intestinal subocclusion” that the head of state undertook, but they decided to go for a “conservative treatment” that gave good results.
After evolving in a “satisfactory” way, Bolsonaro was discharged this Sunday around 9:30 a.m. local time (12:30 GMT), according to the latest bulletin released by the private hospital, and he will have to return to the federal capital this same Sunday. “He (Bolsonaro) will continue with outpatient accompaniment by the medical assistant team,” the statement underlines, although it does not report whether the obstruction has been fully resolved.
Gastroenterologist Antonio Macedo explained to journalists that the discharge was possible because the president’s digestive system is working properly, but he has warned that Bolsonaro “must resume the work routine calmly.”
