I think Fender meant the MASSIVE crowds in some countries that gather/kiss statues+touch things that others do/come into close contact with each other/etc.....not small services like those in some parts of the US.
Kohleran: Why religious? You could just as easily say schools or PTA moms or golf club meetings. Most Churches I know of are having online prayer services and giving support to the community as best they can during these circumstances. The area I live in just had a tornado come through killing 19 people about two and a half weeks ago. Before the virus got to the point we see now. The area churches are supporting those families financially and with substenance, then are trying to help with the virus outbreak. Edit: My wifes Church was a designated place for families to come to identify lost loved ones (via photos, not as an actual morgue) in the aftermath of the tornado for instance.
