CWN Editor's Note: Father Alexandre Comte, who works for the Vatican’s Dicastery for Communication, was last in Rome in mid-February and is being treated in France. As a precaution, France has quarantined all the resident priests at its national church in Rome (the Church of St. Louis of the French); the church is scheduled to reopen on March 4.
