Superspreader NC Church Linked To 82 Cases, 3 Deaths

Charlotte’s CBS News affiliate reports:

A woman says her mother-in-law has died after attending a convocation at a Charlotte church now potentially linked to the county’s single-largest COVID-19 outbreak. The county is reporting 82 cases and three deaths along with a cluster of six cases at a senior living facility.

This is all stemming from events held at United House of of Prayer for All People on Beatties Ford Road from Oct. 4-11. Thursday and Friday, the health department is hosting a free testing site at the Northwest Health Department, after the church did not agree to do testing on its campus.

The Mecklenburg County Public Health Department is in contact with several other states monitoring for more cases linked to the convocation events. WBTV reached out to the United House of Prayer for comment, but they declined.
