Health Of Pope Francis “Progressively Improving”

The Vatican has announced Pope Francis’ “clinical picture is progressively improving” following his stay at a hospital on Wednesday night.


It also noted that he has resumed his official duties.


He was admitted to Rome’s Gemelli Hospital on Wednesday afternoon over respiratory infection. 


He got admitted to the hospital while honouring some previously scheduled check-ups, it was reported.


This was after Pope Francis had presided over the Wednesday General Audience in St Peter’s Square in the morning.


According to the Vatican, he had been complaining of some respiratory difficulties in recent days.


The results show a respiratory infection (Covid-19 infection excluded) that will require a few days of appropriate hospital medical treatment, the Vatican reported on Wednesday.


On Thursday, the Vatican reported his “clinical picture is progressively improving and he is continuing with his planned treatment” and has therefore resumed work.


“Before lunch, he gathered in prayer in a private chapel in the hospital and received the Eucharist.”


According to BBC, the Pope is scheduled for a list of events this Easter including Palm Sunday including

-2 April, : 09:30 (7:30 GMT) Papal Mass, 12:00 Sunday Blessing
