Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro has pneumonia after registering a fever during a hospital stay, but a tweet on the far-right leader's Twitter profile on Thursday said he was "well."Bolsonaro had an operation on January 28 to remove a colostomy bag that was put in place after he was stabbed while campaigning ahead of Brazil's election past year".

Jair Bolsonaro, 63, had an operation to remove a colostomy bag that was put in place after been stabbed at a campaign ahead of Brazil's election a year ago.

Antonio Luiz Macedo, one of the president's doctors, told Folha that the new round of antibiotics to treat pneumonia would keep Bolsonaro at least seven more days.

The former army captain is a prolific user of social media, where he conducted large portions of his successful presidential campaign previous year.

"We're very calm, well and we're staying the course", he wrote.

Bolsonaro's sons have also been active on social media, posting positive updates on their father's health. However, Bolsonaro's recuperation has taken longer than expected.

"President Bolsonaro continues to feel no pain, is using a nasogastric tube and abdominal drains, and is consuming liquids orally in association with parenteral nutrition", said a hospital bulletin released on Thursday.

Officially, Bolsonaro has continued to run the country from his hospital bed.
