 In the Philippines,  sixty-two nuns have tested positive for Covid-19 after an outbreak at the Religious of the Virgin Mary convent in Quezon City,  according to the Catholic Bishops Conference.  
In a statement released Wednesday,  the congregation's Secretariat said the infections were confirmed after their swab tests on September 10th. 
The congregation said that since September 14th,  the entire convent “has been on lockdown and fully cooperating” with the city government on health quarantine measures. 
The city’s epidemiology and disease surveillance unit earlier reported that about 50 others who tested positive for Covid-19 are caregivers,  health aides and drivers. 
The Bishops Conference of the Philippines also reported that newly installed Cardinal Jose Advincula of Manila has tested positive for Covid-19, his archdiocese said Friday. 
Fr.  Reginald Malicdem,  the archdiocese’s chancellor,  said that the cardinal does not feel any other symptoms aside from a “slight fever”. 
“He is in quarantine,  observing strict protocols, ” Malicdem said.  “Doctors are also monitoring his condition. ”
The archdiocese asked for prayers for the fast recovery of the 69-year old cardinal,  who was just installed as Manila archbishop last June. 
The cardinal is fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
