The health of Silvio Berlusconi (84) is bad. The multiple Italian ex-prime minister, media icon and passionate women lover was re-admitted to San Raffaele Hospital in Milan last Tuesday, where he has been regularly in recent months. This time he was supposed to have an intestinal infection.
“ He‘s not doing well, but he’s a fighter and he‘ll get over it,” said Lega leader Matteo Salvini, who had spoken to him over the phone. There have even been rumors in the parliament over the past few days that he would be dying. But Licia Ronzulli, senatrice of Berlusconi’s Forza Italia who visited him at the hospital, denied this. Gianni Letta, the loyal right-hand man of Berlusconi, also said that the situation is under control. Berlusconi‘s doctor, Alberto Zangrillo, keeps an eye on his patient and said he’s doing well.
Berlusconi had corona in September last year and never got over it well. Possibly, the intestinal infection is another consequence of this. Berlusconi also had heart problems. In January, he was admitted to a clinic in Monaco. In February, Berlusconi had to be hospitalized in Milan because of a fall. He has also had prostate cancer before and received a pacemaker in the United States in 2006. This should now be replaced, but because Berlusconi had corona, his physical condition would not be able to cope with the operation. His heart would therefore be the greatest risk.
Bunga bunga party
There is still a trial against Berlusconi in connection with possible bribes of false testimonies about the Moroccan nightclub dancer Ruby El Mahroug, who regularly showed up at the so-called Bunga bunga parties.
