The information spread like wildfire on Thursday afternoon, January 14, in the Italian media. Silvio Berlusconi, 84 years old, is hospitalized again. He had known health problems for several years and had just been admitted to the Cardio-Thoracic Center in Monaco.
In the spring of 2019, Silvio Berlusconi underwent surgery for an intestinal obstruction in a Milan hospital. It was at this hospital that he also underwent a major open heart operation in June 2016. The last health problem dates back to September 2020 where he remained in the hospital for ten days after a lung infection due to Covid-19.
“He is at the cardiothoracic hospital in Monaco for the examinations. He will be home in a few days,” said a spokesman for Forza Italia.
