The South China Morning Post reports:
A church in South Korea sprayed salt water inside the mouths of followers out of a false belief it would help prevent the spread of the coronavirus, but by using the same spray bottle without disinfecting the nozzle, it resulted in 46 church-goers infected, authorities said on Monday.
Video images from the River of Grace Community Church in Gyeonggi Province, south of Seoul, show a church official sticking the nozzle of a spray bottle deep into the mouth of one follower after another, during a prayer gathering attended by some 100 followers on March 1 and March 8. Those infected include the pastor and his wife.
“It’s been confirmed that they put the nozzle of the spray bottle inside the mouth of a follower who was later confirmed as a patient, before they did likewise for other followers as well, without disinfecting the sprayer,” said Lee Hee-young, head of Gyeonggi Province’s coronavirus task force.
In the UK, they would call this doing one’s part to “spread herd immunity.”
Will you all stop flapping your gums? Generation selfish have been raised to think ONLY of themselves. #coronavirus is a team sport
Get it. Get immunity. Feel better. The herd triumphs
Do not fear death. Everyone has an end. It’s just the timing that is uncertain
