– It is closer to the exit door every day. No doubt with the help of everyone who asked in prayer for his life and recovery – thanked Cleo Pozzebon, via Instagram.
At 56, Branco was admitted to the hospital in the South Zone of Rio with pain due to the disease and was admitted on March 16. He was intubated on March 19. After being extubated and showing an improvement in his health, the former athlete would be close to leaving the hospital in Copacabana, in the South Zone of Rio. The information is from the O Globo portal.
CONTAMINATION WOULD HAVE BEEN WITH CBF TEAM
The world champion with the National Team in 1994 is currently the soccer coordinator at the Brazilian Football Confederation. He commands the base categories of the Selection. As he was working, he was part of the committee that was with the Sub-18 at the CT of Retrô Futebol Clube, in Recife, a month ago. On the trip, he and others were reportedly infected with the virus.
CBF accompanies and monitors on a case-by-case basis, but all present good recovery and are isolated, even those who tested negative on the return trip. At least five other members of the delegation who traveled for training and friendlies tested positive.
