Evangelical Christian Baptist Church, where the service took place on May 10, didn’t violate any of the rules aimed at stopping the spread of the virus, the city’s health department told local newspaper Frankfurter Rundschau.
“The situation is very dynamic,” the department’s deputy chief Antoni Walczok told the newspaper.
Despite the high number of cases linked to the service, most of the congregants who have been diagnosed do not have severe cases, German outlet dpa agency reported.
“Most of them are not seriously ill. As far as we know only one person has been admitted to hospital,” Rene Gottschalk, who is head of the city’s health department, told the outlet.
The German state of Hesse, where Frankfurt is located, has allowed churches to hold services since May 1 as long as they follow social distancing and hygiene guidelines.
