    Don’t worry Lassa fever(LF)can’t kill Jehovah,so it won’t kill you. Please only fear if it can kill God(which is infinitly impossible) i believe God won’t allow those who trust him get the virus even if they touch the rat,talkless of die. That God that rescued the israelite in egypt from the plauges is the same for evermore. Just remember”God isn’t blind or deaf”. the tongue is powerful,abi na lie? no. just spread news to everyone you know in your state to fast and pray seriously for 10 days for this nation and for the disease to “CEASE TO EXIST”and i promise you,it will,because we serve the same God that parted the red sea,created this world,and the same Jehovah that gave Jesus power to rise up Lazarus from the grave. whenever you dey fear just proclaim luke chapter 10 vs 19. i swear Jesus go calm you because he no dey lie. please if you read this,ahbeg,don’t keep it to yourself. Tell diseased people/people in fear to proclaim luke 10 vs 19 to themself. Cry to Jesus like a child and he go help you AMEN.
