More than 100 people have confirmed coronavirus cases after attending or coming into contact with someone who attended services at a church in Frankfurt, German authorities confirmed on Sunday.
German officials have linked 107 cases of the disease to May 10 gatherings at Evangelical Christian Baptist Congregation in the city, despite church officials insisting that social distancing guidelines were upheld during the service.
News of the spike in cases resulting from the church services first broke late last week, but the number of infected rose dramatically over the weekend with just 40 cases being linked to the church as recently as Saturday. ■
