Pope has acute bronchitis

Pope Francis said yesterday that he is suffering from acute, infectious bronchitis and that doctors recommended he cancel his planned visit to Dubai this weekend to avoid the quick changes in temperature that would be involved. Francis, who turns 87 in a few weeks, came down with the flu last week and is on antibiotics. The Vatican also announced he was cancelling his planned participation in the U.N. climate conference on doctors’ orders.
