Pelé’s Health is Gradually Improving After Hospitalization, Doctors Say

Brazil soccer great Pelé’s general health is gradually improving after he was hospitalized last week in Sao Paulo after contracting a lung infection, according to a statement from the hospital treating him as reported by the CNN.

“The patient continues to evolve with progressive improvement of his general condition, especially the respiratory infection,” the Albert Einstein Israelite Hospital said in a statement Tuesday.

“He remains in a common room, with stable vital signs, conscious and without new complications.”

In an interview aired Sunday night on TV Globo, Pelé’s daughters said the Brazilian soccer great was hospitalized last week after contracting a lung infection, following a Covid-19 infection.

“He is sick, he is old, but at the moment he is there because of a lung infection, and when he gets better he will go back home again. He is not saying goodbyes in the hospital at the moment”, said Pelé daughter’s Kely Nascimento.

She added: “Three weeks ago he had Covid. He is vaccinated with all doses but because of the cancer medication, the chemotherapy that makes him more fragile, he’s got a lung infection, and that is why he went to hospital.”
