One of the most controversial concerns of recent times, coronavirus has had major impact on all phases of human life.
Literally millions of stories, scientific reports and even books have been written about the vast implications including mortality.
Yet, in reality, very little is known about coronavirus other than it truly is definitely serious. That fact hits hardest when close friends die from coronavirus, and several have.
Many people have ignored every warning denying dangers. They would not even follow laws requiring safety measures, insisting, “Nobody’s going to tell me what to do.”
Feeling the need for utmost caution from the beginning, all recommendations for prevention were followed closely.
A mask was worn for protection of coronavirus spread from others. Despite waiting extended times for availability, two inoculations were received without side effects.
Continuing research indicated those immunizations might not be effective. So, the readily available booster shot was taken.
After that, it seemed a public speaker who insisted, “They are just putting water in the syringes,” might be right. He and his family followed the entire preventive procedures, and everyone still contracted coronavirus.
“It was terrible, and we thought we were going to die,” he said. “Fortunately, we are alive, but who knows the aftereffects.”
Although cases of coronavirus are continually being reported, urgency of the news has subsided. Majority of the population has become unconcerned about any coronavirus precautions.
Other than in certain health institutions, few people are seen in public wearing masks to help prevent contacting coronavirus. There is little information reported about dangers and the need for coronavirus protection of any kind.
Then at a regularly scheduled doctor’s appointment, the physician insisted, “You must have another blood test.”
Puzzled as to the urgency of such requirement, the answer became obvious with the results. “Your coronavirus vaccinations were completely ineffective. A fourth different kind of more powerful immunization is essential.”
Following doctor’s orders, this procedure was more complex with much closer oversight. Three nurses were in attendance to administer and monitor the potent drugging process.
With an hour waiting period to observe consequences, again there were no apparent side effects. Prayerfully, possibility of contacting the coronavirus is eliminated.
Reminded of Leviticus 13:13: “He shall pronounce him clean of the disease.”
