20 priests died with Corona, Church said

 His Holiness Pope Tawadros II, Pope of Alexandria and Patriarch of St. Mark See, said that  20 Coptic priests died since the beginning of the Corona virus crisis last March.

 
Pope said that 5 priests died in 5 different places, and some of them were suffering from chronic diseases such as high blood pressure and others, and therefore, the church decided to suspend services and Holy Masses in Cairo and Alexandria churches.
