The Vatican announced on Saturday (17) the registration of a case of coronavirus in the residence of Santa Marta, where Pope Francis lives.

“A positive case of covid-19 has been recorded among Vatican residents. The patient, asymptomatic for the time being, was isolated, as well as everyone who lived with him ”, said the press office of the Holy See, adding that the infected person had“ temporarily left the Santa Marta residence, where he lives ”.

The statement gave no details on the state of health of the Pope, who since being elected has settled in Santa Marta and not in the apostolic palace.

“The health of all residents is constantly monitored”, he limited himself to explaining the text.

At the hearing last Wednesday, Francis avoided contact with the faithful and greeted them from a distance.

“Forgive me if I greet you from afar, but I think that if all of us, as good citizens, respect the guidelines of the authorities, it will contribute to ending this pandemic,” said the Pope.

Italy, where the virus has already claimed 36,000 lives, has experienced a significant increase in the number of people infected with the virus.

Last Friday, 10,000 new cases were registered in 24 hours, an absolute record since the beginning of the pandemic.
