This morning's top story in the NY Times links "more than 650 coronavirus cases" to "churches and religious events" in the U.S. since the outset of the pandemic. This amounts to 0.02% of the 2,932,596 cases reported by the CDC thus far, a fact that the article does not mention. The Times' headline characterizes this as a "Major Source of Coronavirus Cases," and the opening paragraph alleges that C-19 cases are "surging through churches across the country" after "President Trump demanded that America's shuttered houses of worship be allowed to reopen."
