True Healing For Coronavirus Is In Churches According To Magufuli

Tanzanian President John Pombe Magufuli has shocked the world after announcing that the country will not shut down places of worship over the Coronavirus pandemic because that is where true healing is found.

On Sunday, Magufuli told a congregation in Tanzania that the COVID-19 virus is Satanic and cannot survive in the body of Christ.

‘Tusiogope kwenda kumtukuza Mungu. Sisi kama serikali hatukufunga ibada, misikitini wala makanisani kwa sababu tunajua huku kanisani na misikitini ndipo kwenye uponyaji wa kweli. Corona ambaye ni shetani hawezi akakaa kwenye mwili wa Yesu. Atakaua ameungua huko mbali (We didn’t shut down churches and mosques because that is where there is real healing. Corona cannot survive in the body of Christ, it will burn),” he said to deafening cheers from the congregation.

Magufuli has been on the receiving end of social media criticism for allegedly misleading his people to assemble in churches, which puts them at a higher risk of contracting and spreading the virus.

In South Korea, a patient code named ‘Patient 31’ is responsible for more than 60% of the country’s reported cases of COVID-19 after attending a church service with thousands of people. South Korea has more than 8,700 confirmed cases of Coronavirus and at least 90 deaths.

Across the world, nations have suspended all public gatherings including church services as one of the ways to minimize the chances of the virus spreading.

#StayAtHome has been trending on Twitter worldwide for the whole weekend. Why would Magufuli want his people to attend church? Ignorance?

Tanzania has confirmed 12 cases of Coronavirus.

  7. Chisha's

    Yes!!!!! Jesus is more valuable than this devil called Colona virus.

  8. Lolo

    Worshiping can also.be encouraged in every household and not mass congregation! Prevention is better than cure! Let’s adhere to what scientists are advising! Corona Virus is passing and will be a thing of the past.

    • Isaiah

      True we can worship God anywhere.What the president should understand is that the body of Christ is not a building it’s us the people near or distant places.A public gathering dose not make God appear more or less.He stil remains God and will answer prayer in the closet He will answer prayer were a two people gather and agree on anything.In the spiritual realm yes Covid-19 is an attack from devil agents and I too belive that the church (body of christ) has been affected in some way because we are part of the global village and we too survive on the global economics if we ain’t infected we are affected.We can pray in our home and God will still come through in fact God has already given us victory we pray from the victory side

      • Fonko Fonko

        # Isaiah, I agree with you. Church is just a building, the temple is you and me.We can stay away from church but still be prayerful. Staying away from church should not be confused with not believing in God.Moreover this is move is just temporary.

  9. Jessey Lingard

    Yes that is true Mr President.

  10. Koswe

    Yes we believe in our Lord. Jesus. Christ as our Savior he crushes and nothing is impossible to him. In. Bemba they say muti kusansha Na. Lesa meaning if we minimise gatherings in churches the spread of the virus will be stopped when we are told not to gather it is infact. Jesus who is telling us. The grace be with you all

  11. DR SEE MIND ( MWAMPO)

    TRUE MAGUFULI I SUPPORT

    The first Corona patient, in Tanzania, has been treated and tested negative and discharged, while the remaining eleven are responding well. Trust in God

  14. kelvin lungu

    Don’t test God,let God test you..God help those who help themself.How can you kneel down and start praying when a lion is aproaching you ..Just run for for your life and find a tree,get yourself up then you can say “THANK YOU JESUS”

  15. REALITY

    Kelvin you are right, my people will perish coz of ingnorance lesa afwa aba yafwa keep congregating will shall quarantine our selves while praying

  16. Savior

    #Kelvin Lungu you’re very,very right my bro prevention is better than cure.Its not only in the church where you can have praises and prayers no….but also at our homes God can hear us Amen.

  17. Joel

    What I think is, we should be cautious of this pandemic just like any other pandemics that have occurred in the past.With all do respect,you can’t possibly say those pandemics

  18. Jukus

    Deal with facts and not beliefs. Even when h i v came on the scene, we saw men of God also getting infected and some died because they preached against condom use that has so far saved many lives. A virus can attack even when one is in the middle of prayers. Let us adhere to what health experts tell us before we perish further.

  19. Savior

    Fellow Zambians!let no man deceive you about the dangers of pandemics caused by virus,,,,remember! how many people have lost their lives because of giving up HIV drugs coz of fake pastors………try it and you will regret for rest of your life.

  20. Dre

    the Bible verse Isaiah
    26:20 says Go home, my
    people and lock your doors !
    Hide yourself for a little while
    until the Lords’s anger has passed..

  21. David

    The Bible says that we should obey those that are in authority,so obey what ever the ministry of health is advising about the Corina virus prevention

  22. GT

  27. Hand side sakuwa

    This disease has already visited us so we can’t be gathering as it was let us use private prayers also,in a Congregation some people may come to see their friends or to see the situation thus all ,so if we can use God in a private God is also able to answer our prayers pliz
