Pope Francis mourns after COVID-19 snatches ..

Pope Francis’ personal doctor, Fabrizio Soccorsi, has died from health complications related to the coronavirus.

According to the Vatican, the 78-year-old physician, who was being treated for an “oncological pathology,” died at Rome’s Gemelli Hospital, according to Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano.

Pope Francis named Soccorsi his physician in August 2015, after not restoring the term of papal doctor Patrizio Polisca, who was also head of the Vatican’s healthcare services.
Since the papacy of St. Pope John Paul II, the two stations had been tied together, but Pope Francis deviated from this custom by choosing Soccorsi, a doctor from outside the Vatican.
