Dhe nightspot of the former Formula 1 manager Flavio Briatore in the seaside resort of Porto Cervo in Sardinia has developed into a corona stove, according to media reports. The 70-year-old Briatore himself was in the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan, as his team wrote on Tuesday, according to the Ansa news agency. He went to the hospital on Sunday evening with a slight fever and symptoms of exhaustion. Briatore is stable, he is fine, and he stays there for control.
The number of positive coronavirus smears around the “Billionaire” club has risen to around 60 cases, Ansa reported, citing local health authorities. The number could change slightly because another company was also part of the test series. The first infections in the celebrity meeting Briatores had become known a few days ago. Many affected employees are in isolation at home, it said.
According to media reports, there were also corona cases in other discos on the Costa Smeralda. The soccer coach Sinisa Mihajlovic from the Italian club FC Bologna had also tested positive for the virus a few days ago after his return from Sardinia. According to the media, there was a celebrity soccer match there.
The former Formula 1 team boss Briatore, who was in a relationship with top models such as Naomi Campbell and Heidi Klum, runs several restaurants. When the authorities imposed conditions on the “Billionaire” dance club because of rising corona numbers, Briatore had resisted. He criticized the restrictions in videos and pointed out that there were also many private parties. On August 17th, the Italian government closed all discos because of the risk of infection.
For a long time, the corona virus had hardly been detected on the island. Now the number of newly infected people rose sharply. Sardinian authorities said that tourists had brought the infections with them.
