Lanata treated in same hospital as president
Journalist Jorge Lanata, who hosts Periodismo Para Todos, a TV programme critical of the government, was yesterday admitted for kidney failure dialysis treatment to the same hospital where President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner was operated on.
Lanata reportedly entered the dialysis treatment centre of the Favaloro Foundation hospital at 4pm in an ambulance but was later taken to the British Hospital due to a lack of beds at the Favaloro Foundation.
Thousands of the nation’s social network users were amused by the coincidence that the president’s number one critic happened to be treated in the same hospital as her. “Lanata was submitted in the same clinic as Cristina. This is the best country in the world, no doubt,” wrote one Twitter user.
