In Frankfurt, Germany, over 40 people who attended a church service after the easing of lockdown earlier this month contracted coronavirus.
The service was held on May 10 at a Baptist Church in Frankfurt.
This report was made by the Department of Health’s deputy chief, Antoni Walczok to a news agency on Saturday.
The deputy head of Frankfurt’s Evangelical Christian Baptist congregation, Wladimir Pritzkau, had confirmed the news and said the rules were adhered to during the service.
He also said six of those infected had already been taken to hospital.
According to BBC, at least 16 of the people infected lived in Hanau, east of Frankfurt and as a result, the town has called off a prayer gathering that Muslim leaders had organised for this Sunday.
Germany were convinced to eased lockdown after a massive drop in Coronavirus cases.
Currently, Germany has 179,986 confirmed cases of Coronavirus with 8,366 deaths, and 159,900 recoveries so far.
