RIO DE JANEIRO – President Jair Bolsonaro from Brazil, who was admitted late last month for a stabbing procedure during a September campaign rally, remained in a semi-intensive department in São Paulo on Thursday with signs on a possible pneumonia infection.
Albert Einstein Hospital said in a statement that it had conducted tests on Mr. Bolsonaro after an isolated episode of fever Wednesday night.
"He went through a tomography of the chest and stomach that showed a good development of the intestinal frame and the images compatible with pneumonia," the hospital said.
Mr. Bolsonaro, a far-right politician elected president in October, checked into the hospital on January 27 to remove a colostomy bag introduced after a stabbing attack.
His recovery in the hospital was originally expected to take seven days.
