It should be noted that the World Health Organisation reacted to a trending video in which a Cameroonian medical doctor was ‘healed' from Covid-19 after receiving “interactive prayer” from Joshua's ministry, acknowledging “spiritual leadership is very important in a time like this”.
Joshua's ministry has prayed for Covid-19 patients from around the world including citizens of USA, South Africa, Dominican Republic, Colombia, Honduras and Cuba since its interactive prayer session started.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported scientists alerted the public of a new flu virus resident in Chinese pigs, saying it has become even more infectious and dangerous to humans and needs to be closely monitored so it does not become another pandemic.
The study by the scientists said the virus threat is not imminent. The discovery was made when a team of researchers assessed influenza viruses found in pigs from 2011 to 2018.
They found a G4 strain of H1N1 which has all the features of being a pandemic. The paper of the study was published by the US Journal, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
It was also discovered that people who work on pig farms have a high amount of the virus in their bloodstreams, adding that it is important to monitor workers in the swine industry.
