More than 100 revelers, including dozens of nudists at a French colony, have tested positive for the novel coronavirus, according to reports. Naturalist revelers at the popular Cap d’Agde resort in the Herault region have tested positive so far, according to French Regional Health Authorities, who reported the information on Sunday.
The health authorities called the outbreak “very worrying.”
“We are in an alarming situation, therefore we ask that all the people of the village be tested before leaving the place and going elsewhere,” a spokesman for the Hérault Prefecture said, the Sun reported. “And we also ask all the people who wish to come to this naturist village to postpone their arrival.”
France currently has 260,000 cases with nearly 86,000 people recovered and 30,576 deaths, the third-highest toll in Europe after the UK and Italy. In recent weeks, the country has seen spikes in cases, including 4,900 new cases in a 24-hour period.
