Pope Francis suffers from mild ailment day after supporting Coronavirus affectees
February 27, 2020
ROME (AFP) – A day after he supported sufferers of the coronavirus, Pope Francis fell sick with the Vatican stating that he was only suffering from a 'mild ailment' on Thursday. “Due to a mild ailment, he preferred to stay in the vicinity of Saint Martha´s," the guest house at the Vatican where the 83-year old pontiff lives, chief press officer Matteo Bruni said in a statement. The mass in question was at the Basilica of St John Lateran, one of Rome’s biggest and largest churches. Bruni said the Argentine´s schedule remained otherwise unchanged. The announcement came as Italy struggles to control the largest outbreak of the coronavirus in Europe with some 400 cases. The Vatican made no reference to the disease in its announcement. Francis has not curtailed any of his activities, which often include mingling with crowds and shaking hands. The pontiff, who only has one lung and suffers problems with one hip, very rarely cancels an appointment in his busy schedule. Vatican News said the pope had earlier Thursday celebrated the daily mass at Saint Martha´s House, before meeting members of a global Catholic climate movement as planned.
