Pope Francis tested for the second time after a clergyman who lives in the same residence reportedly contracted COVID-19

Pope Francis has been tested once again after a staff who lives in the same residence reportedly contracted COVID-19. Local news said that the pope has been swabbed yesterday along with other Vatican residents upon receiving reports that a clergyman at Saint Martha’s guest house has been tested positive. They also said that the unnamed clergyman has been hospitalized in Rome.

Thankfully, the pope is cleared of coronavirus for the second time, along with all of those subsequently tested.

The 83-year old pope first took the coronavirus test last March 3 and tested negative.

Pope Francis broadcast live masses every day in the chapel of the Casa Santa Marta during the Covid-19 crisis on the Vatican News YouTube channel.
