Pope has ‘mild ailment’, skips mass: Vatican

Pope Francis cancelled a scheduled appearance at mass in Rome yesterday because of "a mild ailment", the Vatican said, the day after he appeared to be suffering a cold. "Due to a mild ailment, he preferred to stay in the vicinity of Saint Martha's," the guest house at the Vatican where the 83-year old pontiff lives, chief press officer Matteo Bruni said in a statement. The mass in question was at the Basilica of St. John Lateran, one of Rome's biggest and largest churches. Bruni said the Argentine's schedule remained otherwise unchanged. The announcement came as Italy struggles to control the largest outbreak of the coronavirus in Europe with some 400 cases. The Vatican made no reference to the disease in its announcement.
