Last year, the Brazilian President also had to be rushed to hospital due to another intestinal blockage which seems to have occurred after developing chronic hiccups. The controversial President widely known for dismissing the pandemic as none other than the simple flu was stabbed during his Presidential campaign back in September 2018. This is the second hospitalization for the Brazilian President since the stabbing attack.
