Pope Health Fears: Visit to coronavirus-hit Italy leaves Pontiff with spluttering cough


FEARS about Pope Francais health have reached boiling point after his latest public appearance saw him coughing and spluttering uncontrollably.

Yesterday marked Pope Francis’ first public appearance in four days after he was struck by an illness which forced him to cancel some of his activities. However, his appearance on his return was rather worrying causing some to fear he may have contracted the deadly coronavirus
The 83-year-old Roman Catholic leader appeared at the window of the Vatican's Apostolic Palace to address thousands of people in St. Peter's Square.
The Sunday noon message and blessing was his first public appearance since an Ash Wednesday Mass in Rome.
However, his followers soon became concerned after he was seen coughing and spluttering throughout his message.
Peter's Square, saying he had solidarity with those suffering from coronavirus.
As a result of his illness, Pope Francis postponed his official appointments on Friday and was “working from home”, according to the Vatican.
The Vatican has not specified what was ailing Francis.
However, fears in Italy over an outbreak of coronavirus has forced the situation being the Pope’s health to be clarified a little more.
On Friday, spokesman Matteo Bruni dismissed speculation that the pope was anything more than slightly unwell.
He said: “There is no evidence that would lead to diagnosing anything but a mild indisposition.”
This comes after the Pope cancelled a scheduled appearance at mass because of the “mild ailment” as it was described by the Vatican.
But he still continued celebrating the morning mass and receiving visitors even as public events were cancelled and schools closed across swathes of Italy this week because of the coronavirus outbreak.
Pope Francis met with the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church head Sviatoslav Shevchuk and was meant to join the entire Roman Curia - the Holy See's administrative institutions - at the retreat on Sunday.
This comes after his allies had to defend him from "insulting attacks" after a more controversial Vatican meeting turned hostile.
After inviting Amazonian bishops to the Vatican, Pope Francis was branded “sacrilegious” and asked to apologise to conservative figures in the Catholic Church.
However, the Argentine’s allies from the Amazon region jumped to his defence in December, publishing a statement thanking him for the support.
It expressed thanks to the Pope for “an ecclesial event that has placed the world’s eyes on this vast area, which needs a massive evangelistic effort and colossal strength to be able to implement the many needs of an integral ecology.”
The letter added: “It is not surprising that the Holy Father has been an object of virulent and insulting attacks, plagued by lies and calumny.”
The statement came as a much needed boost for the Pope after traditionalists in the Church wrote their own letter to him in October, deriding the Amazonian visit.
