The former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has been admitted this Friday to the San Raffaele hospital in Milan, three weeks after being discharged for a pneumonia aggravated by chronic leukemia who has suffered for a long time, local media reported.
Hours later, the politician’s medical team has specified that Berlusconi’s hospitalization responds to “programmed” controls for his leukemia, and ruled out any “critical aspect or other alarms.” Next Sunday, the leader of Forza Italy (FI) was scheduled to meet with ministers from his party, a member of the current government coalition led by Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni.
Berlusconi, from 86 years, had to be admitted to the Intensive Care Unit on April 5 due to pneumonia aggravated by leukemia that, according to his medical team, he had suffered for a long time. After twelve days, he was transferred to the plant and finally was discharged on May 19after having been hospitalized for 44 days.
During that time he was accompanied at all times by his girlfriend, the deputy martha fascinates, 53 years younger, and received visits from his closest collaborators, from his partners, such as Meloni, and from his family, such as his five children, as well as numerous friends. From the hospital, the tycoon even appeared in two videos: one to encourage Italians to vote in local elections and another to intervene in his party’s convention, in which he claimed to be “ready” to return to battle.
The medical report from his trusted doctor, Alberto Zangrillo, revealed that Berlusconi was being treated for a “pulmonary infection” caused by “a chronic hematological condition that he has been carrying for a long time: chronic myelomonocytic leukemia“.

Over the years, Berlusconi has been hospitalized on several occasions: on one of them he was implanted with a pacemakerwhile it was also entered by covid and in one of the most recent, in January 2022, he was admitted for a urinary infection.
