怀疑面具的爱达荷州牧师在重症监护病房(CoCU-19)中降落

爱达荷州的一位牧师称自己为 “无面具” 在一个 服务 and repeatedly questioned the veracity of coronavirus case reporting is in the ICU after contracting Covid-19.

保罗·范诺伊, senior pastor at Candlelight Church in Coeur d’Alene, has spent two weeks in the hospital with a Covid-19 diagnosis, ministry coordinator Eric Reade confirmed to CNN. Five other church staff were infected with coronavirus, 太, but they’ve all recovered, 他说.
在一个 comment shared through Candlelight Church, Van Noy said he’ll soon move out of the ICU into another room in the hospital and then recover at home.
At present I feel OK but still need quite a bit of oxygen supportespecially if and when I try to get up out of the bed,” he said in a statement through the church.
    His wife also contracted Covid-19 but wasn’t hospitalized, according to the church. The couple are two of over 3,050 cases in the Northwest Idaho area, 当地的 health data 表演.
    Candlelight Church shut its doors temporarily in March but reopened for in-person services in early May. Van Noy’s church doesn’t require parishioners to wear masks, though they’re welcome to, Reade told CNN.
    在一个 七月 22 服务 that was posted online, Van Noy said while he doesn’t mind if other people wear masks, he didn’twant to be toldhe needed to wear a mask.
    He also said he wouldn’t comply if the city ordered him to halt in-person services, though the church also livestreams its services. Nationwide, church leaders have been 被罚款 and even 被捕 — 对于 holding services 疫情期间.
    在一个 July Facebook post, Van Noy falsely claimed that wearing masks doesn’t prevent Covid-19 transmission, and he urged his parishioners not to fear thecause or effect of Covid-19.
    Multiple international studies have shown that wearing masks, paired with persistent social distancing, 是 most effective ways to prevent transmission of coronavirus. Effective face masks keep asymptomatic people from sneezing, coughing or spitting out droplets that contain the virus and prevent the wearer from breathing in someone else’s virus-bearing droplets.
    May we keep our heads at a time like this,” Van Noy wrote. “和, may we defend our freedoms lest they quickly disappear. We will not close down our church, we will not stop singing praises to the Lord, and we will not be required to wear masks or refrain from allowing those who wish to wear one the opportunity.
      Van Noy’s church will soon host two controversial figures who’ve flouted coronavirus guidelines and questioned mask mandates: 查理·柯克, founder of the conservative student group Turning Point USA, and Rob McCoy, a California pastor who was fined for holding indoor church services despite Covid-19 restrictions. The men will speak at services later this month towork to make sense of what the church’s proper role in America can and should be in the face of increasing opposition and cultural animosity.
      Pacific Northwest newspaper the Spokesman-Review reported that the event with Kirk and McCoy will be held in-person.
