Two days ago, report emerged that the founder of The Synagogue, Church of All Nations, Prophet TB Joshua, has healed a Cameroonian doctor infected with Covid-19.
Dr. Kameni Pierre, a gynecologist and obstetrician, testified with “scientific evidence” to being healed from the deadly COVID-19 on TB Joshua’s popular Christian channel Emmanuel TV.
Dr. Kameni Pierre, revealed that he was suffering with COVID-19 and in isolation in a hospital ward when he called in via video to receive prayer during an interactive programme on Emmanuel TV. He further explained his symptoms included a cough, headaches, difficulty in breathing and pains throughout the body.
He showed his medical report confirming him positive to COVID-19, which has infected more than ten million people worldwide and resulted in more than 500,000 fatalities.
Following this, the World Health Organization (WHO) has reacted to Doctor Kameni Pierre testimony. WHO Director-General, Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus who was questioned about the healing by Cameroonian journalist, Simon Ateba during an interactive media session, said faith and science should “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.”
WHO Executive Director of Health Emergencies, Dr Michael Ryan on his own part expressed readiness of the international health agency to collaborate with bodies like The Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) to advance the fight against Coronavirus.
“Certainly, spiritual leadership is very important in a time like this.”
