Well, the COVID-19 pandemic was prophesized in the Bible and was to affect the earth together with the locust invasion, which has affected most East African countries.
In 2 Chronicles 7:13-15, the Lord says,
WHEN I SHUT UP THE HEAVENS SO THAT THERE IS NO RAIN, OR COMMAND LOCUSTS TO DEVOUR THE LAND OR SEND A PLAGUE AMONG MY PEOPLE. IF MY PEOPLE, WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME, WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES AND PRAY AND SEEK MY FACE AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, THEN I WILL HEAR FROM HEAVEN, AND I WILL FORGIVE THEIR SINS AND WILL MAKE THEIR LAND PROSPEROUS AGAIN. I WILL WATCH OVER THIS TEMPLE AND BE READY TO HEAR ALL THE PRAYERS THAT ARE OFFERED HERE.
The verse has gone viral on social media platforms with many calling for prayers.
WHO has advised people to self-quarantine and practice social distancing to avoid contracting COVID-19 and in Isaiah 26:20 -21 the Lord says,
GO, MY PEOPLE, ENTER YOUR ROOMS AND SHUT YOUR DOORS BEHIND YOU. HIDE YOURSELVES A LITTLE WHILE UNTIL THE WRATH HAS PASSED. 21FOR BEHOLD, THE LORD IS COMING OUT OF HIS DWELLING TO PUNISH THE INHABITANTS OF THE EARTH FOR THEIR INIQUITY. THE EARTH WILL REVEAL HER BLOODSHED AND WILL NO LONGER CONCEAL HER SLAIN.
