Corona , Corona , China, China, COOOVID 19.... COOVID 19... It is time to think about God and WHOLE human beings. EACH and every human being living on earth are equal in front of God. One should not divide human beings based on the religion....The most important thing is there is that "Gods" never fight but humans fight each other in the name of God. Hope Corona can teach a lesson to all human beings ...

One of the most important lessons many humans are learning is how important science is in all aspects of life.

It is time to think about God and WHOLE human beings

Which god? You do realize there is more than one god, correct?

Those people in that photo are not two meters from each other. It seems they put more trust in their god than in science. Good luck to them.

Which god? Why only one?

Religious gatherings have already been hotspots of coronavirus. This photo is so depressing.

Many Muslims believe that anything that happens is god’s will, inshallah, so preventative steps are often ignored.

Orthodox Jews in Israel are also ignoring orders to stop gathering for prayers and sadly paying a heavy price now, Muslims will too. It is one thing to follow you faith but another to Ignore well proven medical advice of SD and save you family, friends and even your faith.

Orthodox Jews in Israel are also ignoring orders

For the record, these are Ultra-Orthodox. Modern Orthodox Jews are, for the most part, not doing this. Among Muslims, many, though obviously not all, of the leaders are advising caution and adherence to health protocols. The difference in the level of precaution is also there among adherents of different divisions of Christianity, if you've been reading the papers.

Muslim men attend a Friday prayer despite concerns of the new coronavirus outbreak, at a mosque during the first day of the holy fasting month of Ramadan in Lhokseumawe, in the religiously conservative province of Aceh, Indonesia

Good grief...
