Two members of the Protestant church in Biddinghuizen have died after becoming infected with coronavirus while making recordings for an online church service, local broadcaster Omroep Flevoland said.
In total, 10 people involved in the project became ill with coronavirus after the recording session on December 15. The church had decided to offer online services only during the lockdown.
Church council Jan Klopman, who was among those to become ill, told the broadcaster that the coronavirus regulations had been adhered to during the recording process.
In late December it emerged that nine of the 10 biggest coronavirus hotbeds in the Netherlands are classified as Christian council areas.
