Trump & The Faiths: Covid-19

Trump calls churches and places of worship to reopen

Some may say Trump is seeking to gain support from people of different faiths- the Democrats will certainly see it that way. On Friday he declared that churches and other places of worship should reopen and regarded them as essential. To some he has a point because if other businesses including liquor stores have been deemed essential why not churches and religious gatherings alike. He explained that the leaders will have to make the final judgements paying closer attention to the precautionary measures. However some faith leaders including Rev. Jesse Jackson called for churches to remain closed. In other words man like Jesse don’t regard churches and places of worship as essential. Prolly politically they are reluctant to endorse Trump’s policies. Anyhow there is a risk of members getting too excited and overlooking the measures with the notion that the Lord will be the amour against any weapon or diseases. Thus far it has been proved that pandemics are beyond the power of any mortal man, faith and Devine healing. Faiths right now are alluding to the fact that it’s God’s will and it shall come to pass. It’s yet another chapter in the book of life. Where are those who claim to heal the sick on television for all to see? They are cautious and rather agreeing that it’s God’s will.
The other thing he did which was right is to call upon all religious leaders from different faiths not only Christians. However some people are speculating that he was reluctant to call upon mosques to reopen. Since American constitution is a secular document it does claim any particular religion or creed as the nation’s symbolic faith, though it’s citizens are predominantly Christians. From my opinion faith is the key component rather than religion. They have been very powerful religious leaders from different faiths whose profundity and impact is remarkable. Think of Ghandi- he brought the British Empire to its knees by the power of faith yet he was a simple man in nappies feeding off from his followers. Mohammed love him or hate him his influence was profound yet he had small means being born poor in Arabia. He was loved and he is still loved. Companions were willing to lose life and limbs to protect him, for instance during the battle of Uhud where one of his companions took a barrage of arrows in his back shielding the Prophet. However his religion is now marred by fanatics who believe that killing is virtue.
According to Napoleon Hill, the power of faith, love and sex emotions is unmatched and if used well can achieve things beyond comprehension. Unfeigned faith can overcome anything and can make dreams come true.

Kachasu Could Be The Panacea to Curb Coronavirus: Particularly in Africa

Research elsewhere has shown that coronaviruses can be inactivated within a minute by disinfecting surfaces with 62-71% alcohol (Journal of Hospital Infection, Volume 104, Issue 3, pp246-251).

This offers a little hope for African countries for there is a strong often lethal brew called Kachasu aka Lutuku. The beverage is commonly illegally brewed in DRC Congo, Zimbabwe, Malawi and Zambia. The university of Zambia (UNZA) found out that the brew contains 20-30 % alcohol. However many would argue that the alcohol content is more than that. Besides the UNZA results other studies concluded that the beverage contains as high as 70% alcohol. Rather than labelling it as a an illegal drinking beverage this this could utilised as a panacea and save lives.

Coronavirus: Covid-19

Disclaimer: I’m not a doctor, virologist or a chemist therefore refrain from any experiments whatsoever after reading my words. – The fact of the matter is hydrogen peroxide can kill Coronavirus within a minute. While it’s poisonous to consume a higher dosage of it, swallowing small amounts of it (3% ) is usually not dangerous (National Capital Poison Centre). That said the medicine think tanks around the globe would have tried all sorts of experiments to find out if it’s a viable cure of Covid-19. Soon or later they will find a break through to stop it. The problem is it’s highly contagious and very stubborn- can survive in temperatures below 56 degrees Celsius. Some studies found out that coronaviruses, including Sars and Mers can survive on metal, glass and plastic for as long as nine days, unless they are properly disinfected. However some can survive for longer- about 28 days in low temperatures (Gray, 2020). It can also be transmitted in faecal (feces) matter. Scary that given that most surfaces are by and large covered faecal matter, most folk don’t wash their hands after visiting the bathroom particularly for number two. A recent study tested touch screens on 8 different McDonald’s locations, two in Birmingham and six in London. The study found fecal bacteria on every one of them, enough to put people in Hospital (UK Metro, 2020). In this digital world of touch screens the transmission of the virus is prevalent. The supermarkets could still spread the virus unless unless certain measures are imposed such as all shopkeeper must wear protective gear and shopper should maintain a certain distance apart.
