Ranchi:Today the whole world is battling with Covid-19 pandemic. There are worldwide complete lockdown to contain this corona virus disease. Things have changed so much overnights. Hospital facilities have become so scarce. No patients are entertained without prior Covid-19 test. Luckily, thanks be to God, not many of ours have needed to get admitted to hospital.

Fr. Severius Ekka, SJ is admitted to Ranchi Neurology Centre under the care of Dr Prem Kumar due to heavy fever and had complain of no urine pass.

His Sodium level had shot up. He was restless and disoriented and always blubbering "Yesu Ki Jeet Ho gayi, Corona Nahi Hai”. According to the report received by Br Telesphore, he is now doing well.

Fr Severius Ekka is over 80 year and stays in Manresa House Infirmary. He had to undergo covid-19 test. Result is awaiting.

A few weeks ago Fr Benjamin Kerketta, SJ was brought from Bundu and was admitted in St Ann'es Hospital Raja Ulhato. He had suffered stroke but thankfully, he is doing well too.

Please do remember and pray for them that both get well soon.
