‘It’s a sadness’, says Ingrid Guimarães about Paulo Gustavo’s hospitalization


Ingrid Guimarães spoke about the health status of her friend Paulo Gustavo, interned with Covid-19 in Rio de Janeiro, during the meeting with Fátima Bernardes this Monday (3). “People who don’t even know him call me daily. Paulo is a very strong symbol of joy. For us it is a sadness,” said the actress, emotionally.

“We live in suspension. We have a prayer group of his friends. We pray every day, he is there in the faith, he does not accept that he does not return. Paulo has achieved something that I think nobody has achieved in this country. He united the right , the left, the center, all layers of the public. It is Brazil cheering for a person, praying for him “, valued the friend.

Ingrid points out that Paulo Gustavo had redoubled his care with hygiene before contracting Covid-19: “He was a completely paranoid guy. He was at his house, in the mountains, he took a lot of care, really. For you to see how this disease takes you by surprise We would never imagine that a 42 year old guy was going to be [em estado de saúde] serious as Paulo was “.

According to the most recent medical reports released by his press office, the actor remains in a serious condition in the ICU (Intensive Care Unit) of a hospital located in Rio de Janeiro. He is part of the group at risk of the disease because he is asthmatic.

Paulo Gustavo has been hospitalized since March 13 and continues using mechanical ventilation and Ecmo, an artificial lung technique known as extracorporeal membrane oxygenation therapy, which can cost up to R $ 50,000 per day of use.
