Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is in hospital
Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has been held since yesterday in a hospital where he had gone for routine medical examinations.
The news was given by the Italian media, which quoted sources from Berlusconi's party, "Forza Italia". The 84-year-old, according to these sources, was hospitalized in the "San Raffaele" hospital in Milan, in the same institution where he was hospitalized last September when he became infected with the coronavirus.
The exact cause of Berlusconi's hospitalization is still unknown, but this is the second time Berlusconi has been hospitalized in 2021, raising doubts about his health.
Recall that in 2016, the former Italian prime minister underwent delicate heart surgery, and also survived a prostate cancer, from which he recovered in January this year.
The news of his hospitalization was also reacted by the Italian stock exchange, which has started quoting shares above in the media giant "Mediaset", where Berlusconi is the main shareholder.
