The respiratory failure has come about as an aftereffect of the COVID-19 virus that the Italian contracted over the Christmas period. He had shown signs of improvement in this time, although doctors have recently revealed that he had been through a complicated week.

The statement from Dr Nicola Cilloni read:

“Fausto Gresini is still hospitalized in the Intensive Care Unit of the Maggiore Hospital for the persistence of severe respiratory failure due to the complications of Covid infection - with important interstitial pneumonia,

“After a sudden worsening of the respiratory function in the past week, in the last few days the health conditions have improved - thanks also to machinery that helped remove carbon dioxide from the blood, allowing less stress on the lungs - while the general clinical picture remains serious and the prognosis is still confidential.”
