Hospitalized for nearly two months, Chico Anysio’s widow, Malga di Paula, continues to receive medical treatment at the Hospital das Clínicas in Passo Fundo, in Rio Grande do Sul. She was admitted to the unit on June 27, due to complications from the Covid-19. Malga started physiotherapy and is already able to perform the exercises in the hospital.
“Look at me (full of muscles), working to go home soon. All happy with the best physiotherapist in the world”, commented she, who posed next to the professional, on her website.
