Silvio Berlusconi’s health condition is improving four days after he was hospitalised with COVID-related bilateral pneumonia. Details on the Italian former PM’s health situation were given by Berlusconi’s personal doctor and head of intensive care at Milan’s San Raffaele Hospital, Alberto Zangrillo, said Monday.
“The overall clinical picture appears to be improving, and is consistent with the haemo-chemical evidence and the return of a robust specific immune response, associated with a reduction of the indices of phlogosis,” Zangrillo’s daily bulletin said.
Berlusconi, who turns 84 later this month, is alert and not in intensive care.
The three-time ex-PM and media magnate has said he is ready to lead his centre-right Forza Italia (FI) party in elections in seven Italian regions including Veneto, Tuscany, Marche and Puglia and many towns and cities on September 20-21.
Berlusconi’s eldest daughter Marina has also tested positive for COVID like her father and two other children Barbara and Luigi, sources said Monday.
