ROME — The Vatican says Pope Francis has been taken to a Rome clinic in the wake of grumbling of breathing challenges.
Prior the Vatican guaranteed the visit was for a formerly planned examination.
Vatican representative Matteo Bruni’s subsequent assertion said that clinic tests showed Francis is experiencing respiratory contamination, yet they precluded Coronavirus.
Bruni said the pope will stay in the emergency clinic for a couple of days.
The pope has diverticulitis, a condition that can taint or excite the colon. He went through a medical procedure in 2021 to eliminate part of his colon.
Recently he had said the condition had returned, yet that he was not excessively concerned.
Francis is expected to observe Palm Sunday Mass this end of the week, the beginning of various functions, including Great Friday, and coming full circle with Easter Sunday on April 9.
Francis visited the Popularity-based Republic of Congo and South Sudan in February. It was the primary ecclesiastical visit to the DRC starting around 1985, and the main by a pope since South Sudan acquired freedom in 2011.
