'Superspreader wedding' in US' Maine causes 7 Covid-19 deaths

Sep 18, 2020 17:11 IST

A wedding in the state of Maine, in the United States turned into a 'coronavirus superspreader' after almost 177 infections and 7 deaths were traced back to the event.

The wedding on August 7 was attended by 65 people, breaking the official limit of 50 guests. Within 10 days of the wedding, over 2 dozen cases were reported, forcing the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention in Maine to open an investigation.

Officials say that none of the 7 people who died had attended the wedding. Wedding receptions have now revived the virus scare as several hotspots across Maine are being linked back to the wedding.
