The 12th person infected by coronavirus in Vatican City works for Pope Francis, the Holy See Press Office says.
The staffer has been working remotely since sometime in March and is now under observation.
The 83-year-old Pope, who has a damaged lung from an infection in his 20s, has twice tested negative for coronavirus. He is being distanced from anyone who might be carrying the virus, takes his meals in his private quarters, and uses hand sanitizer before and after meeting any guests, the Vatican press office said last month.
This is a developing breaking news story. It will be updated momentarily.
