The former Santa Fe governor and current senator, Alberto Reutemann, was

interned in the last hours

 in a sanatorium in the center of the provincial capital where he had arrived for studies.

Reutemann (79), twice Santa Fe governor and national senator since 2003, underwent surgery in New York in 2017 due to liver cancer.

The current hospitalization would have to do with

sequelae derived from that condition and not with a coronavirus picture

, they pointed out from their environment.

Those close to the former Formula One driver explained in recent times that, after that operation,

his health was "deteriorated"

and that he was left with "physical handicaps."

In this sense, the former deputy Alejandra Vucasovich revealed last year that Reutemann was

"very lucid, but with many physical disabilities,"

when she was asked about the leader's silence regarding the Vicentin case.

"The cancer he had at the time has left him very deteriorated," added Vucasovich, very close to the former athlete, in statements to Radio 2.

Reutemann himself had reported in April 2017 about the intervention to which he was subjected in New York: "I had a tumor in the liver. It was a very long surgery of 6 or 7 hours and it took three months to heal."

Reutemann began in politics from Peronism, at the hands of the late former president Carlos Menem, but later he differentiated himself by joining the Cambiemos alliance, being one of the main leaders of the interior of the country in supporting Mauricio Macri.
