Former Benetton and Renault team principal has tested positive for COVID. Since yesterday, Monday the 24th, Briatore is hospitalized at the San Raffaele hospital, in Milan.
According to the Italian newspaper L’Espresso, the entrepreneur is in serious conditions, but other sources do not report this detail.
Briatore has probably contracted the virus last week in Sardinia: the “Billionaire”, the high-class club he owns on the island, has been one of the biggest recent focusses in Italy, with 63 infected just among the personnel.
Furthermore, Briatore has played soccer with other vips, including football coach Sinisa Mihajlović who has tested positive as well.
The Billionaire club has been closed on the 17th of August by the major of Arzachena, the town where it’s located. Harsh had been Briatore’s comments, who stated: “It’s heartbreaking to see the economy being destroyed by people who have never achieved anything in their lives”.
