The three-time Prime Minister of Italy and president of Forza Italia, Silvio Berlusconi, 86, left the Intensive Care Unit this Sunday, where he has remained since he was admitted twelve days ago at the San Raffaele hospital in Milan ( north).
The transfer of Berlusconi, who has suffered from chronic myelomonocytic leukemia for some time, is due to the "constant improvement" to which his doctors, headed by Alberto Zangrillo, have referred in the latest bulletins issued by the hospital.
The tycoon was admitted on April 5 "to treat a lung infection" that had caused leukemia, which is being treated with light chemotherapy because it has worsened in recent months.
"Good luck, friend Silvio!" His partner in the government coalition and vice president of the Executive, Matteo Salvini, wished him today on social networks, in a message on his social networks along with a photograph of the tycoon and the headline: "Berlusconi He's out of Intensive Care."
In the latest medical bulletin, issued last Thursday, Zangrillo indicated that "a new constant improvement in respiratory and renal function has been observed, with effective containment of leukocytosis and inflammatory syndrome."
The former president receives daily visits from one of his five children and his brother Paolo who have been optimistic about the recovery of "Il Cavaliere". Today both the businessman's daughter, Marina Berlusconi, and Fedele Confalonieri, the president of Mediaset and one of his best friends, went to the hospital, according to local media.
While his partner, Marta Fascina, 53 years younger than Berlusconi, always remains with him, waiting for them to return to their mansion in Arcore, on the outskirts of Milan.
From the hospital, Berlusconi called in the first days the leaders of his party and also his allies in the Government: the Italian Prime Minister, Giorgia Meloni, and Salvini, who are at the head of the far-right formations Brothers of Italy and the League , respectively.
Berlusconi, who has suffered numerous hospitalizations and operations throughout his life and particularly in recent years, had already been admitted to San Raffaele at the end of March for what were described as "medical checks".
