Presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro (PSL) is still hospitalized in critical condition at Albert Einstein Hospital’s intensive care unit, and will have to undergo a new major surgery to reconstruct his intestinal tract and remove the colostomy bag. The information was given in a new bulletin released by the hospital on Monday (10) morning.
According to the medical bulletin, Bolsonaro is still in intensive care. He is also still being fed through a catheter. There are no signs of infection, and he is still undergoing physical therapy. Subsequently, in an undisclosed date, the candidate will have to undergo a new major surgery.
