WHO Ready To Adopt Divine Healing for CORAVID -19, set to collaborate with the Church
Following the video of a Cameroonian medical doctor, Kameni Pierre, claimed to be healed of COVID-19 by Pastor TB Joshua through his church TV channel, the World Health Organization (WHO) has reacted and consider collaborating with faith based organisation to adopt spiritual healing.
According to The Nation, the director-general of WHO, Tedros Ghebreyesus, WHO executive director of health emergencies, Michael Ryan and other WHO officials were questioned about the miracle by a Cameroonian journalist, Simon Ateba, during an interactive media session during the week.
In the video, Pierre, a gynecologist and obstetrician, said he was suffering from COVID-19 and was in isolation in a hospital ward when he called in via video to receive prayer during an interactive programme on the TV channel.
He displayed his COVID-19 positive medical report and while receiving prayer, he ‘vomited out’ the disease.
According to the report, days later, he held up a medical report confirming that he was diagnosed negative to COVID-19.
Responding, Ryan affirmed the readiness of WHO to collaborate with spiritual bodies to advance the cause of the war against the deadly virus.
Praising the role of faith-based organisations in providing accurate information to communities. “Certainly, spiritual leadership is very important in a time like this,” Ryan said.
For Ghebreyesus, faith and science should “go together.”
He said, “We know many religious leaders who would really advise their followers to follow their faith and at the same time use science.
The two do not contradict, they go together. We will call on all religious leaders to be in this fight and save lives.”
