Rome: Former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi said on Sunday that he was doing better after repeated hospital stays in recent months and would remain active in politics.

“Fortunately I’m doing better, but the doctors won’t let me take part in public events yet. Nevertheless, I promise to be with you soon,” the 84-year-old told a meeting of his Forza Italia party by phone, according to media reports.

Berlusconi’s four hospital stays this year -- most recently in May — were prompted by complications from his coronavirus infection in 2020. He spent several days in a Monaco hospital in January for a heart arrhythmia, while in September he was treated for a lung infection linked to Covid-19.
