A reassuring message is written in the bible in (Habakkuk 3:5). It says: Plague went before him; pestilence followed his steps. The book of Habakkuk sends reassurance in the souls that the epidemic, no matter how severe and powerful, it fades before God Almighty.
Surely he will save you

His Eminence, Benjamin Bishop of Menoufia, said in his article The Epidemic and the Work of God explained to us that God is accepts prayers in the time of the epidemic, just like God stopped the epidemic spread in front of Moses the Prophet and Aaron. The high priest took incense and ran among the congregation. We need to trust in the power of the Lord and remember his promise: Surely he will save you from the fowler s snare and from the deadly pestilence. (Psalm 91: 3)
Bishop Bemjamin made clear that the appearance of the pandemic has its medical reasons, as well as spiritual ones. For example, the lack of true worship and the spread of weak prayers and transcendence, self-love and hidden hatred and other misdeeds. This was the reason of the epidemic as stated in (Deuteronomy 28: 20) The LORD will send on you curses, confusion and rebuke in everything you put your hand to, until you are destroyed and come to sudden ruin because of the evil you have done in forsaking him.
The real solution is the necessity of repentance, and this is what we learn from the account of the Samaritan woman, the people of Nineveh, the blood-bleeder who has recovered, the daughter of the widow and the paralytic, the blind child, and many who have received the blessing of recovery mixed with repentance.
