Brazil’s President Jair Messias Bolsonaro, hospitalized at São Paulo’s the Vila Nova Star hospital, is still being fed creamy food and responding well. Parenteral (intravenous) nutrition is being reduced, Sunday (Sep 15) medical reports said.
The report also states that the president has no fever and is not in pain, and his general state is experiencing an improvement, as well as his intestinal movements. Bolsonaro is still undergoing respiratory and motor physical therapy, and going for walks up and down the corridor.
The president’s spokesman Otávio Rêgo Barros said he is in excellent spirits, which has been confirmed by the medical staff with every visit. No date for discharge has been estimated.
“His discharge from hospital is linked to his clinical state, which has made considerably progress, so we have good expectations. We wouldn’t like to specify a date, but we hope it’s soon enough. The semi-solid diet may count as a parameter for his discharge,” Rêgo Barros declared.
Bolsonaro has been hospitalized since September 7 for his fourth surgery after suffering a knife attack during a rally staged as part of his presidential campaign on September 7 last year.
