He noted that the fasting and prayer will direct all the spiritual powers and forces behind the COVID-19 disease to go away from the surface of the earth.
“Within these 30 days you need to keep hearing the word of God, so I will be addressing you to make sure you are fed every day for the next 30 days till we come together again,” he noted.
The revered Archbishop made the revelation during a 34-minute prayer session against the coronavirus on Monday, March 16, 2020.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to worsen, much attention is being given to preventive and precautionary measures.
Countries are adapting stringent and strict ways to prevent the spread of the disease.
Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV).
Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people.
