Coronavirus: A Perspective

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 12, 2020

         I’VE HEARD A NUMBER OF EXPLANATIONS FOR THE CORONAVIRUS. SOME SUGGEST IT IS LIKE AN OLD TESTAMENT PESTILENCE. OTHERS SAY IT REMINDS THEM OF SOME OF THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES JESUS TALKED ABOUT WHEN HE SPOKE OF THE END OF THE AGE.

         IS IT PUNISHMENT FOR OUR COLLECTIVE SINS AND FORGETTING GOD? I DON’T KNOW, BUT I DO KNOW THAT LIKE OTHER VIRUSES WE ARE IN BETTER SHAPE TO TREAT AND CONQUER IT THAN WERE 100 YEARS AGO WHEN THE SO-CALLED “SPANISH FLU” DECIMATED THE COUNTRY AND THE WORLD. 500 MILLION PEOPLE WERE INFECTED THEN AND BETWEEN 20 MILLION AND 50 MILLION DIED.

         THAT WAS BEFORE MODERN ANTIBIOTICS AND MODERN WAYS TO SPREAD INFORMATION SO PEOPLE COULD AVOID INFECTION.

         YOU’VE HEARD FROM THE EXPERTS. WASH YOUR HANDS REGULARLY. AVOID LARGE CROWDS AND PHYSICAL CONTACT IF POSSIBLE. IF YOU ARE ELDERLY AND HAVE UNDERLYING MEDICAL CONDITIONS YOU ARE MOST VULNERABLE. TAKE EXTRA CARE. AND PRAY THAT GOD WILL HELP OUR LEADERS FIND A CURE AND THAT WARMER WEATHER WILL DECIMATE THE VIRUS. DID I MENTION PRAY? I’M CAL THOMAS.
