Italian PM says Berlusconi recovers quickly
Italian Prime Minister George Meloni on Sunday, May 14, visited former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, who has been in Milan’s San Raffaele hospital for more than a month. Their conversation lasted more than an hour, the press service of the Italian Cabinet reported.
Statement on this matter published on his website. “Berlusconi is in a very good mood, he is recovering quickly and, despite being hospitalized, he is constantly working on the main topics,” Meloni said.
According to the Italian government, Meloni and Berlusconi talked, in particular, about “further steps of the executive branch and the ruling majority.”
On March 28, 86-year-old Berlusconi himself went to the doctors because of pain. The politician arrived at the hospital, where, after additional checks, it was decided to leave him until March 31. Later it became known that he was hospitalized again. The doctors decided to put Berlusconi in the intensive care unit of the cardiology department.
The newspaper Corriere della Sera reported on April 6 that the politician had leukemia. Ten days later, on April 16, the publication wrote that Berlusconi was transferred from the intensive care unit to a regular ward. In early May, the politician recorded the first public video after his hospitalization. He declared readiness back to politics.
