CWN Editor's Note: Cardinal Joseph Zen, 91, received hospital treatment in January for breathing problems but is not near death, according to a Hong Kong newspaper report.

“He can walk and is just like before he was admitted to hospital,” said Father Carlos Cheung, who (like Cardinal Zen) is a Salesian. “Some people were spreading rumors or fake news saying he is reaching the end of his life. That is absolutely not true.”
