Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, who was recently hospitalized in a Milan hospital with bilateral pneumonia caused by the coronavirus infection COVID-19, is in a stable condition. This was announced on September 5 by his doctor Alberto Zangrillo reports Reuters.
вЂњThis instills cautious but reasonable optimism,вЂќ the doctor said in a short statement.
It is noted that on Wednesday, September 2, the 83-year-old Berlusconi tested positive for COVID-19 and was taken to Milan's San Raffaele hospital the next day after he developed a mild fever.
A subsequent X-ray showed that the politician had developed mild pneumonia in both lungs, and his doctor told reporters that he decided to hospitalize Berlusconi as a precaution given his age and previous health problems (the ex-prime minister had major heart surgery in 2016, and also had prostate cancer).
