Why can’t religion end coronavirus?-LANRE RASHEED

As at the time of writing this article, over 1 million people all over the world are infected with the deadly Corona virus. From China to USA, Italy, Germany, UK, Senegal, Egypt, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Israel, More than 50 countries in less than 3 months have had more than 3000 people dead from infection of corona virus.

Nobody knows how it really got into humans. Some claim it’s from Chinese eating bush bats or rats or wild animals,others claim it’s a biological weapon created to attack the Chinese economy.  Whichever is the case, one thing I would like us to discuss is why religion that claims to solve all problems has been helpless as millions are infected and thousands dying every single day from corona virus?

Saudi Arabia has cancelled Hajj this year for many countries.  Rome has the Pope speaking to worshipers from video outreach instead of the usual Sunday mass at the Vatican , as it is too risky to pray for people that can infect him with Corona virus.
A south Korean pastor is facing charges of murder for holding a church crusade even when government had warned against such gathering, many members of the church got infected while praying, including a 7 month old baby.  Some of them are dead already.  In Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus Christ there -cases-several cases of Corona virus. The government have locked down the cradles of birth or the Christ. Iran has cancelled all Friday prayers nationwide. Corona virus has killed over 100 people in Iran.
In Nigeria, only one case of Corona virus has been positively identified and the Italian patient seems to have survived from quarantine.  A country that has more churches than the whole of Europe, more mosques than Saudi Arabia with many pastors and imams who claim God speaks to them and they can heal the sick,wake the dead,make the blind see and give babies to barren women can’t find a single man of God that can pray Corona virus away.
I’ll like to ask one simple question. Why can’t religion kill Corona virus but claims it can pray to solve all problems?.
