VATICAN: 6 new cases of Covid-19 confirmed

Two new cases of Covid-19 within the Holy See have recently been confirmed. Matteo Bruni, Holy See Press Office spokesman, released the results. This would give a total of six cases in the Vatican.

Both Pope Francis and his closest workers are free from danger

According to the Vatican News portal, Bruni stated that: “

“In recent days, as part of the checks carried out by the Health and Hygiene Directorate of the Vatican City State in compliance with the directives on the corona virus emergency, another individual has tested positive for Covid-19: an official of the Secretariat of State resident in Santa Marta who, showing some symptoms, was subsequently placed in isolation. “

The director also said that the man’s health status is not critical so far; and that he is under observation in a Roman hospital.

“As a precautionary measure, given this further finding, appropriate sanitation measures were taken and new tests were carried out,” added Bruni.

Pope Francis is well

Days ago, the media reported that four cases had been confirmed at the Holy See.

Therefore, there are currently six in total among Vatican employees and citizens infected with the virus.

“I can confirm that neither the Holy Father nor his closest collaborators are involved,” Bruni concluded.

It has been confirmed that apart from these and the previously reported cases, there are no more people infected with Coronavirus in the Vatican.
