Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has been transferred from the intensive care unit to a regular ward. This was announced on April 16 by Corriere della Sera.
Berlusconi is in the Milan clinic “San Raffaele”. His brother Paolo confirmed that the politician’s condition allowed him to leave intensive care.
Earlier, on April 5, 86-year-old Berlusconi was taken to intensive care with suspected pneumonia and heart problems. The next day it became known that he was diagnosed with leukemia and was prescribed a course of chemotherapy.
Later, on April 10, doctors reported that Berlusconi’s condition was gradually improving. Nevertheless, the politician remained in the intensive care unit.
Silvio Berlusconi led the Italian government four times – in 1994-1995, 2001-2005, 2005-2006 and 2008-2011. He is currently the leader of the Forward Italy! Party, which is part of the ruling coalition.
