Sister Josephine Seier, 94, died Friday. According to the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner, a post-mortem test revealed she tested positive for COVID-19.

Dutch daily Algemeen Dagblad reports today that COVID-19 is killing many people in monasteries.

In Bijdorp monastery in Voorschoten, four nuns and one friar have died this May.

In the Sisters of Charity nunnery in Tilburg, during two weeks in April, 13 out of 128 nuns died.

Also in Tilburg, four friars of the Brothers of Our Lady Mother of Mercy, including a former superior general, died.

In the Sisters of Charity nunnery in Schijndel, four nuns died.

In the monastery in Zenderen, COVID-19 killed two monks of the Order of the Brothers of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel, including the prior, and infected three more.

Some good coronavirus news: the anti-coronavirus measures not only mean less coronavirus deaths, but also less patients infected with other contagious diseases. Among Dutch children, norovirus infections have become 70-80% less since the partial lockdown.
