Media Accused L.A. Church of Being COVID Superspreader… Then Only 3 Cases Turned Up

The media accused the LA-based Grace Community Church of being a superspreader of the coronavirus, but after weeks of breathless reporting, only three cases turned up.

Multiple Los Angeles “news” outlets claimed that there was a growing “outbreak” because the church was refusing to close its doors in obedience to the city’s draconian coronavirus lockdown.

Local news station KTLA-TV reported, “Coronavirus outbreak strikes defiant Sun Valley megachurch that held indoor services despite public health orders.”

But now, after a suitable amount of time has passed, the church has noted that there are only three coronavirus cases among its flock.

Jenna Ellis, an attorney for Grace Community Church, called the stories “grossly misleading” meant to incite hate for the church.

“Three very mild positive tests among more than 7,000 people is hardly news. 0.04% is not an ‘outbreak.’ The LA Times and others’ grossly misleading and fear-mongering headlines aim to mischaracterize Grace Community Church as irresponsible and a superspreader,” Ellis said, according to the Daily Wire.

“It has never been the Church’s position that it is only safe to hold services if no one ever tests positive, or for example, if no one ever gets the flu during flu season,” Ellis added. “Our position has been that LA County shutting down churches indefinitely amid a virus with a 99.98% survival rate, especially when state-preferred businesses are open and protests are held without restriction, is unconstitutional and harmful to the free exercise of religion.”

Even the L.A. County Department of Health confirmed that there were only three cases.

Once again, we see how the media lies to us about… well… everything.
