Silvio Berlusconi, who has been hospitalized frequently lately, is struggling with his diseases.
The former prime minister of Italy, 86, who had breathing problems before, was taken to intensive care at the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan yesterday due to heart problems.
Leukemia Diagnosis: Chemotherapy Started
A source close to the matter said Berlusconi was diagnosed with leukemia. It is said that the Italian politician started chemotherapy.
Antonio Tajani, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Deputy Prime Minister, told RAI state television:
I spoke with Professor Zangrillo (Berlusconi’s doctor) this morning. He told me that Berlusconi had had a quiet night and his condition was stable.
Brother: Berlusconi A Rock
Silvio Berlusconi’s younger brother, Paolo, told reporters as he left the hospital on Wednesday evening, “He’s a rock, this time he’ll make it, too.” he said.
While no statement was made from the hospital regarding Berlusconi’s condition, it was stated in the Italian press that the famous leader had hematological (blood diseases) problems, which caused concerns.
While it was stated that the Italian politician’s treatment in the intensive care unit of cardiovascular surgery continues, ANSA agency also wrote that the condition of the former prime minister is stable.
“This time I got over it”
Berlusconi, who was the longest-serving prime minister in Italy between 1994 and 2011, caught the coronavirus in September 2020, and was able to recover after a troublesome two-week treatment period.
Berlusconi, as he exited the hospital, “I managed to get over it this time, too.” he said.
