Pope Francis Recovers from the Cold
The Vatican confirmed its first positive case of coronavirus Friday as Pope Francis recovers from what turned out to just be the common cold.
A second Vatican official has been placed in quarantine after a priest from France’s Catholic church in Rome tested positive for the virus, a spokesperson told the Associated Press.
The 83-year-old pontiff was forced to cancel several official audiences after coming down with the cold, including his participation at a week-long spiritual retreat in the Roman countryside. He submitted to a swab test earlier this week and tested negative for coronavirus.
