The carioca president was stabbed in the abdomen in 2018

“We’ll be back soon, God willing. Brazil is ours ”, tweeted the Brazilian president, Jair Bolsonaro, after being hospitalized for an intestinal obstruction. In the photo you can see him lying on a hospital bed with the tubes going through his body.

According to local media, the first abdominal pains appeared yesterday night and, along with them is the persistent hiccups which often accompanies him for days. The reasons for the hospitalization are still unclear but it is thought to be the fault of the massive dose of drugs that the carioca leader is taking after dental surgery. Many then thought of the stabbing in the abdomen suffered by the president during the presidential campaign of 2018, when he was injured in the mesenteric artery and intestine. Bolsonaro was first admitted to the Hospital das Forças Armadas in Brasilia and then transferred to Sao Paulo.

For over a year, Bolsonaro has been under a barrage for its handling of the coronavirus. A denier, he had downplayed the impact of Covid on his country despite the fact that he himself fell ill with coronavirus. «Let’s stop being a country of sissies! There is no need to escape, the virus must be faced head on. What generation is this? “, He said at a meeting in October 2020, also pointing out another side of him that is making him increasingly disliked even by those who initially supported him: an increasingly ostentatious homophobia, such as was a flag.

Finally, the president is in the middle of a judicial vortex that links bribes and vaccines. Brazil’s Attorney General has asked the Federal Supreme Court to open an investigation for omissions in an ex officio deed. It is suspected that he covered up a plot of bribes linked to the purchase of doses of Covaxin, the vaccine of India’s Bharat Biotech.
