Fininvest chairman Marina Berlusconi tests positive for COVID-19

MILAN, Sept 7 (Reuters) - Marina Berlusconi, chair of Fininvest and daughter of former Italian premier Silvio Berlusconi, has tested positive for COVID-19, a person close to the group said on Monday.

Berlusconi’s condition is no cause for alarm, the person said, confirming a report from Italian news agency ANSA.

Fininvest is the holding that controls broadcaster Mediaset and publisher Mondadori.

Silvio Berlusconi is currently in Milan’s San Raffaele hospital with mild pneumonia in both lungs after testing positive for COVID-19 last week.

The source said Marina Berlusconi, 54, who tested negative last week after her father fell ill, underwent another test at the weekend which returned a positive result.
