COVID-19 Is Real Stay Safe

Dear Friends, our world is currently facing the global pandemic the Covid19. Governments from all over the world, including ours (both state and federal), are doing what they can to contain the spread of the virus. Normal activities have been suspended in a bit to contain and trace cases.
Regular activities at the library have been suspended including borrowing of books and reading within the library space. However, due to the peculiar case of our community, we have realized that we can play an important role in providing the right information to our community. We were sad to hear several rumors and wrong information that has been shared within the community. Two days ago, there were rumors going around the community that Christians should check their Bible for any strand of hair that can be found. If found, it should be taken with water and that it will provide immunity for those who have done so.
In another section of the community which we visited, we realized that many people took chloroquine believing that it will cure covid19. Some of these people we met were already reacting to the dosage of chloroquine they consumed.

These stories point to the peculiar circumstance of our community hence the need for us to clear such misinformation by providing the right information. In that line, we will be available to provide the right information. Using the right sources and consulting with medical practitioners, we will be answering any question that pertains to covid19. Kindly note that we will not provide any medical care, only information. We hope that these efforts will help combat that infodemic that goes along with this pandemic.

Please kindly adhere to the safety instructions offered by experts. We will fight this challenge together, and we will overcome it. “Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you. Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hands” says the Lord. (Isaiah 41:10). Let’s keep praying. This too will pass away! God be with you!
