The World Health Organization (WHO) has reacted to reports of the General Overseer of the synagogue church of all nations (SCOAN), T.B Joshua healing a Coronavirus patient.
A Cameroonian medical doctor Kameni Pierre, who claimed he had suffered Coronavirus, said he received his healing after he called in for prayers during an interactive programme on Emmanuel TV from the isolation center he was placed in.
According to Pierre, he displayed his result and ‘vomited out’ the disease while receiving prayers from the Nigerian Pastor.
Reacting to this, WHO Director-General, Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus though questioned Pierre’s healing also agreed that science and faith go together.
“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, he said.
WHO Executive Director of Health Emergencies, Dr Michael Ryan on his own part agreed spiritual leadership is very important in a time like this.
