St. Joseph Catholic Major Seminary in Yangon has taken on a new role as a quarantine center during the coronavirus pandemic.

On June 1, it welcomed dozens of people who would be quarantined for 21 days after returning from abroad. A few days later, more people arrived and the seminary now has 102 under quarantine.

Of the 102 under quarantine, 88 had returned from Thailand and 14 from China, according to church officials.
