State health officials warning against large gatherings
The State Health Officer says large social gatherings are spreading the coronavirus in parts of Mississippi.
Dr. Thomas Dobbs says every county is ‘one wild weekend from falling off the cliff.’ He says COVID-19 cases have increased rapidly in Wayne County since mid-May and large gatherings are believed to be driving that.
A person with the virus attended a funeral on May 17th in Baldwyn. About 100 people were there and the health department says at least nine have tested positive.
