Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro is recovering 14 days after the surgery in his intestinal tract, conducted at São Paulo’s Albert Einstein Hospital. Early this morning (Feb. 11), he wrote on Twitter about some of the measures taken by the federal government.
“In the first days of government, important projects on health care and housing for those who need them most, this time in Acre, are top priorities, socially reaching tens of thousands of Brazilians,” the president said while showing a video of Caixa President Pedro Guimarães visiting the Hospital Regional do Alto do Acre Wildy Viana. Caixa, often referred to as a social bank, has been one of the main sponsors of social projects implemented by the Brazilian government.
On Sunday (10), the president’s intravenous feeding started being reduced, with semisolid food and nutritional supplement administered orally, a medical report said.
He is still at the hospital’s semi-intensive unit, and has showed good progress and no fever. Doctors said his lungs saw a significant improvement, and the president is taking the same antibiotics. He is also doing exercises for breathing and muscular strength, with regular walks.
Also on Sunday, Bolsonaro posted on Twitter the first video after the surgery where is seen speaking. In the video, he thanks the medical team at the hospital and those who treated him at a public hospital back in September, after he was stabbed during a campaign rally in Juiz de Fora, Minas Gerais state. In the recording, Bolsonaro asks the Federal Police for an answer to the knife attack. He had published other videos, in which he did not talk.
