A Christian woman who is ‘not a hand-washer’ believes that god is ‘using coronavirus for good’ and she doesn’t fear the deadly virus, as she has shared in a controversial new post.
Lori Alexander, a blogger, who has written the bestselling lifestyle guide ‘The Power of a Transformed Wife’, says that she doesn’t fear the coronavirus and that she is not going to be washing her hands any more than usual.
Alexander, 60, claims that only recently has she started developing a cold and she’s treated it so far by drinking elderberry juice.
She said: “I am not a hand-washer since I am not afraid of germs. I have dry skin and I greatly dislike the feel of dry hands.”
She also said that although the virus is spreading rapidly and is killing thousands in the process, which in the result is causing stock markets to crash worldwide, is not something to be worrying about.
Instead, she believes that abortions and sex changes are “more destructive to our culture than this virus or the stock market crashing”.
She then went on to speculate: “Maybe God will use this virus for good. Our culture needs a good wake up call”.
The blogger believes that this pandemic should be used to make people reflect on their current lifestyles, adding: “We’re all going to die someday and many times things such as this cause people to examine their lives more closely.”
She then downplays the coronavirus threat, labelling it “NOTHING”.
She compares it to the bubonic plague and polio and says that in comparison, it is nothing to be concerned about. She thinks it should only be a concern for the elderly who are believed to be the most at risk, claiming that “no children from zero to nine have died from it and most children have mild cases”.
However, Akiko Iwasaki at Yale University has warned that despite children not being as ill from the virus as older people, it doesn’t mean they aren’t contributing to the overall spread of this new form of coronavirus.
She has stated: “There’s a danger of being complacent about the children not getting severely ill.”
