MILAN (Reuters) - Italy’s former prime minister, Silvio Berlusconi, is suffering a slight lung infection after coming down with coronavirus, but his condition is not worrying, his personal doctor, Alberto Zangrillo, said on Friday.

Zangrillo told reporters he decided to hospitalize Berlusconi late on Thursday as a precautionary measure given his age and previous health problems. Berlusconi is 83 and underwent major heart surgery in 2016.
