There are fears that an entire nursing home run by nuns in New Jersey has been infected with coronavirus.

It is believed that all 94 residents of the St. Joseph retirement home in Woodbridge have the virus and have been evacuated.

The home is run by the Immaculate Conception, but since the Coronavirus is spreading rapidly in New Jersey, the shortage of staff has reduced the number of nuns who care for all residents to just three at the time of the evacuation.

Government sources told WNBC-TV that 24 at home had been tested positive for coronavirus, while the other 70 were "supposedly positive".

The residents were brought to a backup facility in Whippany, 30 miles north, by medical professionals in full protective gear.

The New York Times reports that at least six of those who tested positive for coronavirus succumbed to the virus.

As of Friday, there were over 6,800 coronavirus cases in New Jersey. Only the state of New York has almost 40,000 more.
