Pope Francis hospitalised for respiratory infection


ROME- Pope Francis had a “quiet night” in the hospital after he was admitted for a respiratory infection on Wednesday, according to Italy’s ANSA news agency.

The agency quoted sources from the Gemelli University Hospital on Thursday morning that medical staff was “very optimistic’’ that the Pope could be back in the Vatican in just a few days, in time for Palm Sunday and ahead of what is a busy season for the Catholic leader.

The 86-year-old was taken to the hospital on Wednesday for a respiratory infection, according to the Holy See.

A Vatican spokesman said he would have to stay for “a few days.” No further medical details were given.

Earlier, on Wednesday, spokesman Matteo Bruni said Francis, 86, had complained of breathing problems in recent days.
