For some reason, I think we will be seeing more cases as a result of the Sturgis rally. This one wedding in Maine, with 65 attending, has now spread to people who weren't at the wedding or reception; the one death so far was a person who wasn't in attendance.
53 people infected as a result of Millinocket wedding and reception
An Aug. 7 wedding and reception in Millinocket that led to a coronavirus outbreak is now linked to 53 cases of the virus along with one previously reported death, the state said Saturday.
Investigators from the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention said they have now identified secondary and tertiary transmission of the virus stemming from the wedding and reception, meaning people are infected who did not attend but came into contact with attendees.
The 53 reported cases reflects an increase of 16 since Friday, when CDC officials reported 37 cases associated with the wedding. The state reported the death of one woman who had been admitted to a hospital for treatment in connection with the outbreak.
Currently, 41 confirmed and 12 probable cases are included in the outbreak, in individuals ranging from 4 to 98 years old.
