Vatican source warns against so-called "expert" speculations on Pope's health

.- This morning, a Vatican source contacted by CNA warned about confusion that so-called "experts" consulted by the secular media can create regarding the true state of the Pontiff’s condition. “It would be irresponsible to be overoptimistic about the Holy Father’s health and about the outcome of the current episode,” the Vatican official told CNA, but he also explained that much of the medical commentaries being delivered by the secular press are “inaccurate and merely speculative.”

“Experts from around the world are describing tens of different scenarios and suggesting a variety of possible treatments,” the source said. “But people must remember that the only ones who actually know exactly what is happening with the Pope from a medical standpoint, are his medical team of Professor (Rodolfo) Proietti  (head of the emergency unit at Gemelli Hospital,) and Professor (Renato) Buzzonetti  (the Pope’s personal physician.)”

“There is no one, absolutely no one at the Vatican”, he concluded, “interested in hiding the Pope’s true condition, and the Vatican Press Office has been consistently transparent in informing the public about the Pope’s health.”
