The Minnesota Department of Health said that 23 cases of coronavirus have been linked back to campaign events in the state for President Trump, a report said Monday.
The department said that the infections were traced to events in Bemidji, Minneapolis and Duluth, according to Axios.
At least 16 cases, which include two patients who are currently hospitalized, were traced to a Sept. 18 campaign rally in Bemidji featuring President Trump, a spokesperson for the health department told the outlet.
“There’s a lot of people,” Trump said as he took the stage in Bemidji. “That’s a big group of people, this is on fast notice too. Thank you.”
