Professor Alberto Zangrillo, head of ICU at San Raffaele Hospital, speaks during a news conference after Italy’s former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi has been hospitalised for further checks after testing positive for the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), in Milan, Italy September 4, 2020.

MILAN (Reuters) – Italy’s former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi is in a stable condition two days after being hospitalised with the coronavirus, his doctor said on Saturday. “This instils cautious but reasonable optimism,” Alberto Zangrillo said in a brief statement.

Zangrillo, who stirred controversy in May when he said coronavirus was losing its potency, told reporters he had decided to hospitalise Berlusconi as a precautionary measure given his age and previous health problems.

Shares in the media company controlled by the Berlusconi family, Mediaset, rose as much as 11. 7% on Friday with traders saying the market was speculating about potential ownership changes at the group if Berlusconi’s health worsens.
