Coronavirus sickens Indiana mayor’s wife, kills her mother


BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — The wife of a southern Indiana mayor has been hospitalized for more than a week with a coronavirus infection and her mother died last week from the illness.

Bloomington Mayor John Hamilton’s wife, Indiana University law professor Dawn Johnsen, wrote in a Facebook post Monday that she was in her ninth day in the hospital and was hopeful of returning home soon.

Johnsen wrote that her 79-year-old mother died Thursday in the Philadelphia area, where she became ill with COVID-19 while visiting another relative.

The mayor’s office says test results Monday showed Hamilton doesn’t have a coronavirus infection.
