Bolsonaro is “doing well,” according to a government statement published by Globoaccording to the AP. The president is stable and will be reevaluated by his doctor, Antônio Luiz de Vasconcellos, CNN reported.

Bolsonaro was hospitalized in July 2021, when a physician found an intestinal obstruction after the leader experienced chronic hiccups. The same physician operated on Bolsonaro after he was stabbed while campaigning in 2018.

“It’s the second hospitalization with the same symptoms, the results of the stabbing (September 6, 2018) and four major surgeries,” the president tweeted Monday.
