Coronavirus Does Not Stop Church Demolition, Cross Removal in China

While most churches in China have canceled in-person services due to the outbreak of Coronavirus, the Chinese government has not ceased its persecution against churches.

A church in Guoyang County, Anhui Province saw its cross removed on March 13. A video shared by the Chinese Christian Fellowship of Righteousness documented the moment when the crane removed the red cross from the church.

A Christian with the surname Chen told China Aid that this church usually has 40 churchgoers attending the service, but due to the lockdown of COVID-19, local authorities utilized this gap to remove the cross.

Bob Fu from China Aid also shared a video, showing Xiangbaishu Church in Yixing city, Jiangsu province reduced to its bare bones on March 11.
