What's happening with the English translation of the Vatican's Charter for Health Care Workers?

As reported by Vatican Radio on February 6th (with links added by this blogger): "A press conference was held on Monday in the Holy See Press Office to present the 25th World Day of the Sick (solemn edition), to be held in Lourdes, France this coming 11 February. The conference also provided the opportunity to present the New Charter for Healthcare Workers....The Charter is a revision and updating of the [1995] Charter for Healthcare Workers....
As of this writing, the updated Charter does not yet seem to be available in English.  That is certainly NOT to say that it is not needed!
  • "The Vatican confirmed today that Pope Francis has ordered a Belgian Catholic charity to stop offering euthanasia in its psychiatric hospitals [If accurately reported, why give this abomination till the end of August????].  In May, the Brothers of Charity group, the charitable arm of the Brothers of Charity religious order in Belgium, announced it would allow doctors to perform euthanasia at its 15 psychiatric hospitals in the country.  Only Belgium and the Netherlands allow doctors to legally kill people with mental health problems" (National Catholic Register, 8/11/17).
