Vatican confirms that Cardinal Tagle, head of the Vatican's evangelization office (prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of People, Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith or "Propaganda Fide") and a key collaborator of Pope Francis, has tested positive for COVID-19.

According to the Deutsch Twitter account of Vatican News, the Cardinal has tested positive for coronavirus after arriving the Philippines.

Confirmed by Holy See Press Office Director, @CardinalChito 'has no symptoms' and is in quarantine in the Philippines. This marks the first leader of a Vatican Dicastery to test positive. His last meeting with Pope Francis was Aug 29. But he tested negative only last September 7 so there is no worries he could have infected the Pope.

Vatican adds that it is checking with people who have been in contact with Tagle in recent days. The window of possible transmission appears short.

Cardinal Tagle is one of the most progressive Church leaders. It's sad that some DDS Filipinos are happy because Cardinal Tagle tested positive for COVID-19. They're happy because Cardinal Tagle is one of the critics of Duterte's inhumane administration.

Duterte even claimed that Cardinal Tagle was "fired from his post due to meddling in politics" when in fact, Cardinal Tagle was promoted by Pope Francis as the second Asian Cardinal-Bishop, the highest rank next to the pope.

Lord, we pray for his healing and speedy recovery.

Get well soon, Cardinal Tagle!
