COVID-19 USA: Sacramento church has more than 70 cases

A Pentecostal church in Sacramento, California, has had an outbreak of more than 70 confirmed cases of coronavirus, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

The newspaper said public health officials suspect members of the Bethany Slavic Missionary Church have continued to meet in private homes, in defiance of county and state orders aimed at curbing spread of the virus.

“It’s outrageous that this is happening,” Sacramento County Public Health Director Peter Beilenson told the Chronicle. “Obviously there is freedom of religion, but when it’s impacting public health as this is, we have to enforce social distancing.”
