Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has left a hospital in Milan’s San Rafaele after a five-day stay, a spokesman for his party, Forza Italia (Go Italy!), Said on Saturday.
Berlusconi, 84, came out through a side entrance and was not seen by photographers and cameramen waiting in front of the main door.
In recent days, there has been speculation that Berlusconi’s health is deteriorating. His doctors have not released detailed information about his condition for weeks, but on Friday his party denied that he was in critical condition.
“This is not the time for obituaries,” said a party source.
The billionaire businessman has been hospitalized several times after contracting coronavirus last September. He told reporters at the time that he had experienced “the most dangerous challenge” of his life, but later sources said he continued to suffer from the deadly effects of the deadly virus.
He was hospitalized in March and twice in April. He also went to hospital in January due to a heart problem.
Political ally Matteo Salvini told reporters on Friday that Berlusconi was “not very well”, but predicted he would bounce back quickly.
