Pope Francis Prays for Those Affected by the Coronavirus

Pope Francis says he is praying for the victims and for all those affected by the coronavirus spreading in China and for the nation's commitment to contain and fight the epidemic, vaticannews reports. 

''I wish to be close to and pray for the people who are sick because of the virus that has spread through China,'' Pope Francis said after praying the Sunday Angelus in St. Peter’s Square.

''May the Lord welcome the dead into his peace, comfort families and sustain the great commitment by the Chinese community that has already been put in place to combat the epidemic,'' he said.

China’s National Health Commission on Sunday said the ability of the new coronavirus to spread is strengthening and infections could continue to rise.

Nearly 2,000 people have been infected in China and 56 killed by the disease.
