Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine (R) shared a graphic Tuesday that shows that 91 people from five counties in the state developed symptoms of COVID-19 after a 56-year-old man with coronavirus attended a church service.
Fifty-three of the cases resulted from fellow worshippers at the service, who later spread COVID-19 symptoms to others in their community. Over a dozen children, including one as young as one year old, developed symptoms by July 4 following the service, according to the graphic.
DeWine said “It spread like wildfire”. It spread to over a dozen children, to a man 65 years old and to a one year old child.
