The President of Brazil< /b>, Jair Bolsonaro, was admitted Thursday night to the Brasilia Armed Forces Hospital for severe abdominal pain, area in which he was stabbed during his campaign in 2018 and which has caused him to undergo operation since then on four occasions.

The new diagnosis is a hernia in the scar left by surgery for that attack. Already in 2019 he had to undergo surgery again in this area due to complications. According to the report provided by the Institutional Security Cabinet, he does not plan to undergo a new operation, although he will continue to be observed, reports the newspaper Estadao.

The last time Bolsonaro had to be admitted was in January of this year. On that occasion, he spent two nights in a hospital in São Paulo treating an intestinal obstruction.

Bolsonaro's state of health seems to have worsened in recent days, once it was made known the reasons why the still president of Brazil would have secluded himself in the Palacio de la Alvorada coinciding with his defeat in the elections on October 30 against Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.

This week, the vice president, Hamilton Mourao , announced that Bolsonaro is convalescing from an infection in one of his legs that prevents him from wearing pants. According to his 'number two', he has erysipelas, a skin disease caused by a bacterium that enters the body through small, poorly healed wounds.

However, the ailment would have subsided and next week he could resume his activities. For the moment, Bolsonaro has barely left the official residence a couple of times and has limited his presence on social networks to which he used to go at least once a week to give his particular informative part.

The last time he was seen on these platforms was on November 2, to ask his followers to stop the protests and the blockades they had imposed on several highways due to the victory of Lula.
