100 nudists test positive for Coronavirus after outbreak at French naturist resort

One of the most famous nudist colonies in Europe has reported a large outbreak of Coronavirus with 100 people testing positive.

French regional health authorities said the situation at the Cap d’Agde resort was ‘very worrying’.

 A spokesman for the Hérault Prefecture said: ‘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. 

‘And we also ask all the people who wish to come to this naturist village to postpone their arrival.’

The outbreak of Covid-19 at Cap d’Agde comes as France reports almost 4,900 new Coronavirus cases over 24 hours, its highest figure since May.

Cap d’Agde is one of the most famous nudist colonies in Europe, which welcomes around 35,000 visitors every summer.
