Mother Haritina, the abbess of the Serbian Orthodox Church (SPC) medieval Pecka Ptrijarshija monastery in western Kosovo, said on Monday that ten out of 18 nuns there were infected with the coronavirus and that all of them were in the self-isolation.

"Some have severe, some mild symptoms. A doctor pays us regular visits and a nurse is constantly checking the sick nuns," Haritina said.

She was also infected, spent a few days in a hospital, but felt better now.

Mother Haritina added the monastery, built in the 13th century, was locked and would not be re-opened until the epidemic was over.

In the meantime, the medical staff in charge of the SPC Patriarch Irinej's treatment said his condition was stable.
