VATICAN OFFICIALS REFUSE TO SAY IF POPE FRANCIS WAS TESTED FOR CORONAVIRUS AS AILING PONTIFF CANCELS ENGAGEMENTS FOR THIRD DAY WITH ‘MYSTERY ILLNESS’

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

Pope Francis has cancelled official engagements for a third straight day as he continued to battle an apparent cold. The 83-year-old’s illness comes amid a coronavirus outbreak in Italy, which has already seen an estimated 888 cases – the worst-hit country in Europe. Vatican officials refused to say whether the pontiff had been tested for the virus, which is fast spreading across the globe, but his illness is assumed to be a cold after he was coughing and blowing his nose during Ash Wednesday Mass.
