Pope Francis is being 'constantly monitored' for signs of the coronavirus, a top Vatican official said Monday, after the 83-year old pontiff met with a cardinal who later tested positive.

Philippine cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, 63, had a private audience with Francis on August 29. He went on to test positive for Covid-19 on his return to Manila on September 10.

'We are being prudent,' Secretary of State Pietro Parolin told ANSA news agency.
