President Jair Bolsonar had to end his break on the coast of Santa Catarina, where he publicly jet-skied and met with supporters on the beach for health reasons. He was taken to the Vila Nova Star hospital in São Paulo, where he was treated for an intestinal obstruction resulting from a knife wound he sustained during the 2018 election campaign.
As with other times when he was hospitalized, images of Bolsonaro in the hospital – such as using a nasogastric tube and walking around the hospital – were circulated on the social media of the president and his family. The striking episode is also picked up by the allies. This Monday (3) MP Eduardo Bolsonaro posted on social media a picture of the moment of the attack, accompanied by the phrase “Who ordered the murder of Bolsonaro?”
In this Wednesday’s issue (5), Breakfast analyzes how governments view the health of presidents. Reporter Fabio Zanini talks about the political messages that Bolsonara sends when he publicly discusses his confessions and how this issue could appear in this year’s campaign.
