    No gods are capable of helping us. Look to scientists and medical professionals to provide us with a vaccine. There have been numerous viruses in the past 100 years. Ex. Spanish flu, Ebola, SARS and now Covid-19. At no point did the gods intervene with a cure. It is when scientists get the better of the virus that we have a solution. Look to science for an answer, not to gods.

    What rubbish is this? Why can't God prevent the COVID-19 and other diseases before infecting people? If he wants to punish the people who have committed sins, then do so on an individual basis rather than killing thousands of innocent people.

    When the so called doctors have no answers for this dangerous pandemic, all of us are left in fear. So whether we believe in God or not, we all should pray but not only along the religious lines. All the churches, Temples, and Mosques should welcome people from all other religions and we should pray as humans.
