The World Health Organization (WHO) has reacted to a video of Prophet TB Joshua healing a coronavirus patient.
A Cameroonian medical doctor called Kameni Pierre claimed he was healed of coronavirus disease by Pastor TB Joshua through his church channel Emmanuel TV.
In the video, Dr Kameni Pierre, a gynaecologist, said he was suffering from coronavirus disease and was in isolation in a hospital ward when he called in via video to receive prayer during an interactive programme on Emmanuel TV.
Dr Pierre displayed his COVID-19 positive medical report and while receiving prayer from Prophet TB Joshua ‘vomited out’ the disease.
Days later, Dr Kameni Pierre held up another medical report confirming he has now tested negative to the virus.
During a media session on Wednesday, Cameroonian journalist Simon Ateba asked WHO Director-General, Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus and other high-ranking WHO officials about TB Joshua’s miracle healing.
Responding to the question, WHO’s Dr Michael Ryan stated that the health agency is ready to collaborate with bodies like The Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) to advance the war against coronavirus.
“Certainly, spiritual leadership is very important in a time like this,” Ryan said praising the role of faith-based organisations in providing accurate information to communities.
WHO Director-General, Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus also recommended that faith and science should “go together”.
Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus said:
“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.”
