Presenter Silvio Santos was diagnosed with Covid-19 this Friday (13) and is hospitalized at Albert Einstein Hospital, in São Paulo. The information was confirmed by the presenter’s daughter, Patrícia Abravanel, in a post made on behalf of the family on their social networks.

Patrícia reassured fans of Silvio Santos, saying that despite the hospitalization he “is doing well clinically”.

“Our father is doing well clinically,” he said. “But he tested positive for Covid and due to his age and the need for frequent testing, the doctors decided to admit him,” Patricia explained.

Earlier, the “O Dia” newspaper reported that the owner of the SBT was in Albert Einstein’s intensive care unit, having been diagnosed with Covid-19 during hospital screening.
