Six nuns from the convent of the Franciscan Sisters of the Holy Family of Mary congregation in Curitiba, Brazil, died in less than a week, five of them from Covid-19. Other nuns at the convent also came down with the illness and some were admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU). Sr Madalena Ryndack of the Curitiba convent said the sisters don’t know how the virus got into the convent. ‘There was an outbreak, an almost uncontrollable situation, but we managed to take care of the sisters and we are coming out of this situation,’ she said.
