Matteo Bruni, the Vaticans chief press spokesman, said in a statement that the Pope held the morning mass as usual and saluted the participants at the end of the event, but that there was no other arrangement on his agenda other than a meeting at the saint Marthas Guesthouse, where he lives, the Gulf News reported.
It was the second day in a row that Franciscans decided to cancel the planned public activities, the report said.
Earlier, the associated press 27 from the Vatican said that Francis was a little sick and cancelled a mass that had originally been attended with Roman clergy on the same day. The Associated Press said the Pope was seen coughing and blowing his nose at a mass on May 26. The Popes illness comes at a time when more than 400 cases of new coronavirus infection have been confirmed in Italy, most of them in northern Italy. There are three cases in Rome, but all have been cured.
