Sunday service attendee confirmed of COVID19, Gwangju city urging churches to stop services

 

Ignoring recommendations to prevent multiple gathering events, there were attendees who participated in a church service who were confirmed to be infected.

 

According to Gwangju city on Mar. 2nd, the mother and son patients, 48 years old and 21 years old respectively, participated in a service on Mar. 1st. This was a combined Sunday service between YangLim(양림) and GyeDan(계단) Churches.

 

As for the mother patient, she drove her own car at 10.25am to stay for 2 hours and the son traveled by foot to visit   for 1 hour and 10 minutes.

 

After the service, they received a diagnostic test at Jeonnam(전남) University Hospital's screening clinics and both tested positive.

 

The health authorities are investigating the pair's epidemiology, as the son's recent European trip has been examined.

 

As for churches within Gwangju, among some 1,500 Protestant Churches, there were some mega churches that cancelled services, however, some others still proceeded with the service schedules.
