A single church in Arkansas has been linked to 34 cases of coronavirus, a stark reminder of the significant strength of the disease as it continues to spread across the country.

The outbreak was reportedly put in motion at a children's fair held at First Assembly of God in Greers Ferry, Arkansas, near the beginning of March. Both the pastor and his wife were infected, as well as more than two dozen congregants.

The pastor of the church urged Americans to "take [the disease] very seriously," claiming that "the intensity of this virus has been underestimated by so many."
