According to Brazilian media O Globo, Bolsonaro allegedly suffered from severe abdominal pain and complained of persistent hiccups for days.

The Brazilian government, in an official note reported by Globo, said the president was hospitalized to investigate causes of hiccups and should be under observation for 24 to 48 hours. The health conditions of the head of state have given him several problems during his term, after being stabbed and injured in the intestine during the 2018 election campaign and contracting Covid-19 last year.

In recent years, the president of Brazil has been at the center of the international news several times, mainly due to his denier management of the coronavirus pandemic, his sharing of views with Donald Trump and the policies that led to the 40% cut of the funds for the protection of the Amazon rainforest, resulting in an increase in illegal fires and logging.

Currently, the pandemic situation in the great South American state still seems out of control, with mortality peaks exceeding 3,000 deaths per day and over 100,000 infections every 24 hours. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the deaths have exceeded half a million, while the total infections are more than 17 million. In addition, in March, Brazil changed its fourth health minister, accused of corruption in the purchase of vaccines, and between June and July tens of thousands of people took to the streets demanding the resignation of Bolsonaro, for his management pandemic and because it was involved in the corruption allegations that forced the minister to resign. The Brazilian supreme court has in fact opened an investigation against the president for his role in the vaccine purchase scandal
