Mario Vargas Llosa, 87, hospitalized for covid-19

The Peruvian-Spanish novelist and Nobel Prize for Literature was admitted last Saturday, his children reported Monday in a Twitter message.

The Peruvian-Spanish novelist Mario Vargas Llosa, 87, has been hospitalized for covid-19 since last Saturday, which is the second time that the writer has been admitted for this disease, his children reported Monday in a Twitter message.

The brief statement signed by Alvaro, Gonzalo and Morgana Vargas Llosa confirmed that the Nobel Prize for Literature (2010) “has been hospitalized since Saturday after being diagnosed with covid-19”, although they do not specify the city where he is, and they assured that They make it public “in view of the interest of the media in the state of health” of the writer.

The veteran writer was in Peru a few weeks ago attending private activities, when he was accompanied by his children and his ex-wife Patricia Llosa. However, Vargas Llosa usually resides in Madrid, where he spends long periods of time.

His children added that “he is being treated by excellent professionals and accompanied by his family” and asked the media to “respect his privacy at this time.”

A few weeks ago, Peruvian lawyer and former Prime Minister Pedro Cateriano shared a photograph of Vargas Llosa signing his affiliation to the new Libertad Popular party, an act he described as “an honor.”

On the other hand, last May, Vargas Llosa expressed his desire to “spend long periods of time in the Dominican Republic” and, faced with that decision, the president of the Caribbean country, Luis Abinader, asked him to accept Dominican citizenship.

The award-winning novelist described the Abinader government as “intelligent and sensible” in the context of a Latin America that “is going through some very difficult times.

Vargas Llosa became the first Spanish-language author to enter the French Language Academy last February, and in his speech he assured that “thanks to France”, where he began to write some of his most outstanding novels, he discovered “another Latin America”.

In April 2022, Vargas Llosa was also admitted for several days for covid-19.
