Matthew 4:23 – Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people.
Having recently been bombarded with the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we’ve seen some people who wear a mask and others who don’t. There are several theories as to when a mask is useful and when it doesn’t help.
Masks are important to wear when you are the one who is contagious for the flu or virus. Masks prevent sick people from spreading an illness. Coronavirus (COVID-19) has been said to wear in order to prevent the spread by containing droplets of fluid born into the air by a cough or sneeze. If the ill person coughs and droplets form on counters or door handles it can then be picked up by someone who touches those areas. Sciencemag.org in their article, “Not Wearing Masks to Prevent Against Coronavirus is a ‘big mistake,’” Top Chinese Scientists Say,” Top Chinese Scientists Say,” provides the reasoning on how best to wear masks.
Masks are not meant to prevent you from getting the virus. To prevent contracting the virus there are five main ways to help stop the spread of the virus according to WHO in their article, “Do the Five.” Hands – wash them often, Elbow – cough into it, Face – don’t touch it, Space – keep your distance, and Home – stay home if you can.
More important information on how the virus travels and causes others to contract the it in the video made by the World Health Organization (WHO) on youtube.com. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1APwq1df6Mw.
Take a look at the Bible verse above. Jesus went from town to town healing those who were sick. He still travels from town to town healing the sick among us. Cling to that hope as we walk through difficult times.
