The Vatican announced, on Saturday, that the tests conducted in the building where Pope Francis resides confirmed that the Pope and his close associates are not infected with Corona virus after tests have shown that a resident of the building was infected with the virus.
This is the first announcement on the status of the Pope, 83, for the Corona virus since the start of the current crisis in Italy, in which more than 10 thousand people died of the disease.
A spokesman for the Vatican, Matteo Bruni, said that tests were carried out on 170 people in the Vatican, and confirmed that 6 of them were sick, one of whom was a dozen permanent residents of the Santa Maria guesthouse in the Vatican.
"I can confirm that he is neither the holy father nor his close associates," he added.
The person who was confirmed to have the disease worked at the Vatican Ministry of Foreign Affairs and was receiving treatment at a hospital in Rome.
The examinations confirmed that another person who had been in contact with the Pope had the disease, but that he was not staying at the Pope's residence.

President Donald Trump said on Saturday he was studying the possibility of imposing a closure on New York State, which has become the epicenter of the epidemic in the country after it registered 50,000 cases of Covid-19.
"New York, New Jersey, maybe a place or two, some parts of Connecticut, I'm thinking about it."
These three states are the hardest hit by the Corona virus. In New York, about 40,000 people are infected with the virus, far more than dozens of other states.
Trump also spoke that he had decided to send the USNS Comfort ship to New York to help counter the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus.
He stated that the "hospital ship" would sail from Virginia and carry a large number of doctors and nurses on board, in addition to 1,200 Marines.
While the spread of the Corona virus in most countries of the world has forced people to stay in their homes, some may be forced to go out to buy basic necessities such as food or medicine, which forces them to be careful and avoid the virus to be transferred to their homes.
And when a person leaves his house, he must be careful about the surfaces he comes into contact with in public places, such as shopping carts, door handles and shelves, in order to reduce the chances of exposure to the virus and bring it to the home.
Washing hands with soap for more than 20 seconds is the best way to go when you return home, according to the CNET website, which mentioned 5 ways to keep your home sterile and free from the emerging coronavirus, based on expert and health professional opinions:
Using sterile napkins for surfaces
Think of the things you touch several times a day, such as door handles, laundries, cabinet knobs, fridge doors, and remote controls, and given that the home is the place where you feel comfortable and relaxed, you may not be careful and strict about washing your hands in your private space as is the case In public places, but you must sterilize those places at least once a day to get rid of germs and viruses.
And if there is a patient at home, you must repeatedly wipe surfaces, knowing that after wiping them with sterile materials, they must be left in the air to give the sterile material time to kill any bacteria.
Sterilize furniture with disinfectant sprays
For furniture items that cannot be used as sterile wipes to wipe and disinfect them, disinfectant sprays can be used on carpets and sofas to kill invisible viruses and germs.
These areas can be sprayed with sterile sprays and left to dry before sitting or walking on these surfaces. Care should also be taken to spray other surfaces in the home, such as tables, beds and bedding.
Clean the floors using a mixture of bleaches
If a person leaves the house, millions of germs and viruses are suspended in his shoes from the places he visited, and if the shoes are not removed when entering the house, it will spread the viruses inside it.
The CDC recommends using one cup of bleach mixed with five gallons of water to wipe and clean the floors, and you can also mix half a cup of white vinegar with one gallon of water and wipe the floors with pores, such as wood, for example.
Use hydrogen peroxide for sterilization
Centers for Disease Control in the United States say 3 percent of peroxide
Hydrogen for sterilization
The Centers for Disease Control in the United States says that within 3 minutes, 3 percent of hydrogen peroxide is able to stop the nasal virus, the main cause of the cold.
If the material is poured directly onto surfaces such as a sink, table or toilets, you will need to leave it for 10 to 15 minutes. This will give her time to do her entire job, and then rub the area and then rinse it with water.
Long-term antiseptics to protect the home
Aseptic products are traded on the market as protecting the surfaces for 24 hours, and although these products are not listed on the EPA list, they are highly effective against viruses in general, and if used daily, they can help prevent Germs and viruses can survive on the roofs of your home and keep them protected throughout the day.
What should you use to clean your car?
When you are outside, you are exposed to germs and viruses that can follow you in your car.
Given the nature of the car being used by several people in the same family, or even any landlord's habit of moving from one place to another before getting into the car again, it is possible that the Corona virus will pass through the hands to places most likely to get dirty inside the car.
These places are simply the most frequently used parts of the car that must be cleaned with sterile materials such as chlorine or those containing at least 70 percent alcohol to ensure viruses are eliminated.
Years ago, a British man began preparing for a catastrophe on the planet, until he found his country and the world at large in front of the outbreak of the new Corona virus.
For a period of 5 years, a man built a "shelter" underground to be a haven for him in the event of a disaster, as is the case now, and was keen to make it more like a "miniature house" full of entertainment.
In 2015, the British Colin Fors decided to start building an underground shelter in the back garden of his home, and he managed to make it look like a real home.
Fors put a mattress, a TV set and a set of drums in the shelter to exercise his favorite hobby, and made sure to provide him with a private generator, as the video clip he posted on YouTube showed.
The man also built a kitchen inside the shelter, equipped with a "microwave" and a sink, and filled it with canned food.
And because he built this place to protect him from any calamities or disasters, Forz made sure to put a gas mask inside the shelter.
Although the situation that the world is currently living in light of the spread of the Corona virus does not require all these complicated procedures, Forz confirmed that he is happy with the decision to build this shelter, and that he is using it now in "the time of Corona"
