Former Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori, 82, has been hospitalized for inadequate blood oxygen saturation, said family doctor Alejandro Aginaga.
“Saturation is low. We have always suspected that this is due to a heart problem, so now cardiologists are studying it, “- quoted by his publication Republica.
According to the doctor, this is not related to the coronavirus infection, as the test for COVID-19 showed a negative result.
He clarified that the problem may be caused by heart disease.
Fujimori was President of Peru from 1990 to 2000.
Earlier, former Polish President Lech Walesa underwent surgery to replace a pacemaker.
