The 84-year-old politician, who had heart surgery in 2016, he spent one night at San Raffaele Hospital last week.
Italy’s former Prime Minister and businessman Silvio Berlusconi was admitted to San Raffaele Hospital in Milan on 1 September for a new health check-up, which comes less than a week after he was discharged from the same hospital several days ago, Reuters writes, citing sources in the Forza Italia party.
Berlusconi has been repeatedly hospitalised for medical observation over the course of the last year because of the long-term effects of COVID-19, which he contracted in September 2020. The politician himself described this period as “the most dangerous challenge” of his life.
In May 2021, Italian prosecutors asked a Milan court to suspend legal action against former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi over health problems. Berlusconi was standing trial alongside 28 other defendants on charges of bribing witnesses to lie about the now notorious “bunga bunga” parties at his home, where underage girls were reportedly trafficked.
