Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro is expected to be discharged from hospital as early as Wednesday, according to doctors and government officials.

The latest medical bulletin released by the Albert Einstein Hospital on Tuesday afternoon said that the president’s health continues to improve after intestinal surgery and a bout of pneumonia, but it made no mention of a release date. Onyx Lorenzoni, Bolsonaro’s chief of staff, told reporters in Brasilia earlier in the day that the president should be back in the capital by Thursday or Friday.
