Illness forces the Pope to cancel an event at the Vatican a day after showing solidarity with coronavirus sufferers and shaking hands with congregation at weekly audience.

Pope Francis has missed a planned Mass with Rome clergy due to illness.

The Vatican said the 83-year-old pontiff had a ‘slight indisposition’ and would proceed with the rest of his planned work on Thursday but Francis ‘preferred to stay near Santa Marta’, the Vatican hotel where he lives.

There was no word from the Vatican about the nature of his illness, but the pope was seen coughing and blowing his nose during the Ash Wednesday Mass.

He was also pictured touching people’s hands and kissing their heads as he walked among crowds in St Peter’s Square.

It comes amid an outbreak of the strain of coronavirus – also known as Covid-19 – in Italy that has infected more than 400 people, almost all of them in the north. Rome had three cases, but all three were cured.

Francis had been scheduled to go to the St John Lateran basilica to meet with Rome clergy and celebrate a penitential Mass at the start of Lent.

Francis is bishop of Rome, but delegates the day-to-day running of the archdiocese to a vicar.

The Argentine pope has generally enjoyed good health. He lost part of one lung as a young man because of a respiratory illness, and suffers from sciatica, which makes walking difficult.

Francis has had a busy schedule lately, including his public general audience on Wednesday and the Ash Wednesday service later in the day in a Roman basilica.

Ghanaian actress Nana Ama McBrown has responded to the claims by some Ghanaians that she is the one in the trending video which a lady was seen knocking Ex President Mahama on the head in live video conversation on COVID-19 last Thursday.

The NDC has taking the trending video as an insult to their flag bearer.

Some of the party social media communicators have started a campaign of boycotting Hisense products of which Nana Ama is an ambassador.

In a respond to the claims, the actress has released the disclaimer below to distance her self from the said video.

My attention has been drawn to a video circulating on various social media platforms in which a female figure, which some claim erroneously and strangely to be me, can be seen under the cloak of darkness, knocking the head of the image of Former President John Mahama on the screen of a TV during his Digital Conversation with Ghanaians last Thursday.

I hereby distance myself from that video and unequivocally state that I am not the woman in the video, and there is no way will I ever behave in such a reprehensible manner towards the Former President of Ghana whom I hold in high respect, or indeed any other person.

By way of emphasis, I would like to entreat the general public, the media and most importantly my fans to disregard it.
