Fabrizio Soccorsi, Pope Francis' died on Saturday 9th January 2021 at Gemelli hospital in Rome. Fabrizio became the personal doctor of the Supreme Pontiff in 2015 and was one of the closest people to the pope. He traveled with the pope on every journey.
Reports from the Vatican indicates that Fabrizio, 78, was being treated for "oncological pathology" worsened by coronavirus complications. The departure of the man who had lost his daughter in 2017 despite religious and medical interventions comes as a huge loss to the Vatican. He was a consultant for the health and hygiene office of the Vatican City State and was part of the medical council of the Congregation for the Causes of the Saints.
Considering how close he was the pope, his death is a great loss on a personal level for the pope. There are a team of health experts in his stead to continue taking care of the aging Pope and Pope Francis, 84, is set to announce a new personal doctor to replace Dr Soccorsi.
