Jair Bolsonaro is urgently hospitalized for a possible intestinal obstruction


The president of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, was urgently hospitalized in the early hours of Monday to treat a possible intestinal obstruction, local press reported.

The doctor Antônio Luiz Macedo, who has operated on Bolsonaro on other occasions, told the UOL news portal that the president would undergo several tests, including a tomography, to examine the possible intestinal obstruction.

Bolsonaro was already admitted in mid-July to be treated for an intestinal obstruction. On that occasion, he stayed in the hospital for four days.

Due to the stabbing he received in 2018, the far-right leader underwent at least four surgeries that made him more prone to intestinal disorders.
