The former Boca, River and Argentine national team, Hugo Gatti, who recovered after suffering from a coronavirus, said that when the doctor who treated him in Madrid told him that he was about to die “he could not believe it” because he “never” felt anything, according to what he told in The Chiringuito de Jugones.
“I realized what was happening when they told me. In the hospital they told me that I was leaving tomorrow every day. They told me that I was close to dying. I asked the doctor so much that she told me that I was close to dying”, the former soccer player and socialist told Josep Pedrerol. “I felt like I was dying being in the hospital,” he adds.
In addition, he says that he went to the hospital for a review because he had symptoms and ended up in hospital: “They put me in because my son Luca told me. I went to be checked and they told me that I had to stay in the hospital. I signed the paper holding myself responsible and I was going to take a taxi.”
