“We instruct patients to chew well, avoid some foods, and we hope to keep the president like that for the next 20, 30 years,” Macedo told reporters in the hospital’s lobby before Bolsonaro’s departure to the airport. He also recommended the president avoid intensive physical activity this week.
Bolsonaro joked about the difficulty of the restrictions.
“I’ll try to follow them, but life goes on,” he said. “My whole life I was an athlete, in the armed forces, a paratrooper, diver. It’s hard to stay still.”
