Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, the head of the Vatican's evangelization congregation, tested positive for coronavirus on Thursday, but is asymptomatic.
The Vatican confirmed Sept. 11 that the Filipino cardinal was swabbed and tested positive for COVID-19 after landing in Manila Sept. 10.
Tagle "has no symptoms and will remain in isolation in the Philippines, where he is," Matteo Bruni, director of the Holy See press office, told CNA.
Bruni said that checks were being carried out on anyone at the Vatican who recently came into contact with the cardinal.
