His condition is according to the Corriere della Sera slightly more serious, but not so severe that he is in intensive care. The hospitalization would rather be a ‘precautionary measure’. A parliamentarian from his Forza Italia party has said that Berlusconi was admitted to a hospital in Milan on Thursday evening. The 83-year-old ex-prime minister had a good night and would be fine.
The virus was diagnosed at Berlusconi last Wednesday. The MEP would have caught it in Sardinia. His 30-year-old girlfriend Marta Farcina has also been infected, as have two of the former prime minister’s five children.
