The artist has been hospitalized for 3 weeks in a hospital in Rio de Janeiro and has been dependent on invasive mechanical ventilation since March 21. After presenting an “improvement curve”, the health condition of Romeu and Gael’s father worsened on Friday (2), and the humorist breathes with the help of an artificial lung.
