|Prince Luiz upon leaving hospital.|
Yesterday, 6 November, Prince Luiz of Brazil was discharged from the Santa Catarina Hospital in São Paolo after a hospitalisation of several days. He had been dealing with bronchitis, which was successfully treated with antibiotics. The prince is eighty-two years-old.
On Saturday, 31 October, the secretariat of the Imperial House announced that Prince Luiz was admitted to hospital to remove a cyst near his eye. It is not clear if the prince was already ill with bronchitis at that time.
Earlier this year, six members of Prince Luiz's family were diagnosed with COVID-19, which thankfully they all survived.
