RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Brazil President Jair Bolsonaro was hospitalized on Wednesday (14) in the Armed Forces Hospital in Brasilia, the country’s capital, a source familiar with the information told Reuters.
The presidency has confirmed that Bolsonaro had been admitted for medical tests after feeling abdominal pains during the early hours of Wednesday, after having suffered from persistent hiccoughing spells for over a week.
Bolsonaro’s health has occasionally been an issue during his presidency after he was stabbed and seriously injured in the intestines on the campaign trail in 2018 . . .
