The head of the intensive care unit of the San Raffaele in Milan where the Cavaliere is hospitalized: “I am serene”

“I cannot deny that there is also a great personal involvement (Video), but he is a person who has accustomed us to always responding in the best possible way and therefore even in the face of a serious pathology, in a truly difficult situation, he is responding well to therapies,” he added.
How is Silvio Berlusconi? “I have to refer to the press release that Professor Ciceri and I made two days ago. It is clear that we are talking about a patient who is of an age that you all know, with a pathology and a complication (Video) that have been defined in a precise way. From this follow targeted therapies, therapies that follow the guidelines, therapies that must always be shared in medicine, when the rules of official medicine are applied, therefore therapies aimed at achieving a goal.
