–Pope Francis To Be Hospitalized With Respiratory Infection
Head of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis has been hospitalized with respiratory infection and would continue to receive treatment for several days.
A spokesman initially said the Pope had been admitted to Rome’s Gemelli hospital for previous tests, but in a statement revealed later, Francis had complained in previous days of “breathing difficulties.”
“The outcome of these [tests] showed a respiratory infection (excluding Covid-19 infection) that will require a few days of appropriate hospital medical therapy.”
“Pope Francis is touched by the many messages received and expresses his gratitude for the closeness and prayer,” Bruni added.

His health has been the frequent subject of speculation, particularly the question of whether he will follow the example set by his predecessor and retire if he cannot continue.
Series of previous test has been carried out on the Pope. Bruni said;
“The Holy Father has been at Gemelli since this afternoon for some previously scheduled tests.”
Recall also that the pope has already signed a resignation letter incase he’s unable to continue as the head of the Catholic Church due to bad health.
Bishops in churches across Italy are praying for Francis’ speedy recovery, the Presidency of the Italian Episcopal Conference, on behalf of the Italian bishops, said in a statement on Wednesday.
“In wishing the Holy Father a speedy recovery, the Presidency entrusts to the Lord the doctors and medical staff who, with professionalism and dedication, care for him and all patients,” it added.
