According tomedia BGR, the new coronavirus can easily spread among people who do not keep their social distance and don’t wear masks. The latest example comes from Ohio officials, who say a man attending a church service infected 53 other worshippers and then, in turn, infected others.
A 56-year-old man in Ohio is reported to have attended the same service with 53 other people in mid-June, which eventually led to nearly 100 people infected with the new crown because the church’s adherents brought the virus back to their families.
“It’s spreading like wildfire, very, very scary,” Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine said at Tuesday’s briefing, CNN reported. “We know that our faith leaders just want to protect those who come to worship.” He added: “It is vital that whenever people get together, everyone wears masks, keeps their social distance, hands wash their hands, and when indoors, make sure they are well ventilated.” “
On July 22, a month after the church outbreak spread, DeWine issued a requirement that all people aged 10 and over wear masks. On Wednesday, he ordered children at school to wear masks, with a few exceptions.
Authorities in Ohio have provided an infographic showing how the virus spreads. Fifty-three people were infected in the church, 18 of whom later spread the virus to at least one other person. In one case, a 34-year-old man passed the disease on to his 31-year-old wife and their four children.
The 56-year-old spread THE VIRUS-19 to his wife and two children. A total of 91 people were infected by one person because of his intentions.
As of Thursday morning local time, more than 96,300 people had been infected with the new coronavirus in Ohio, and 3,605 people have died from COVID-19 in the state so far.
DeWine shared other examples of COVID-19 community communication on Twitter.
