Michael Levitt, a Nobel laureate and Stanford biophysicist, began analyzing the number of COVID-19 cases worldwide in January and correctly calculated that China would get through the worst of its coronavirus outbreak long before many health experts had predicted.

During this time of physical distancing to help slow the spread of the virus, would you like to share God’s peace with your friends and family?

Now he foresees a similar outcome in the United States and the rest of the world.

While many epidemiologists are warning of months, or even years, of massive social disruption and millions of deaths, Levitt says the data simply don’t support such a dire scenario — especially in areas where reasonable social distancing measures are in place. . .

Here’s what Levitt noticed in China: On Jan. 31, the country had 46 new deaths due to the novel coronavirus, compared with 42 new deaths the day before.

Although the number of daily deaths had increased, the rate of that increase had begun to ease off. Essentially, although the car was still speeding up, it was not accelerating as rapidly as before.

“This suggests that the rate of increase in number of the deaths will slow down even more over the next week,” Levitt wrote in a report he sent to friends Feb. 1 that was widely shared on Chinese social media. And soon, he predicted, the number of deaths would be decreasing every day.

Three weeks later, Levitt told the China Daily News that the virus’ rate of growth had peaked. He predicted that the total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in China would end up around 80,000, with about 3,250 deaths.

This forecast turned out to be remarkably accurate: As of March 16, China had counted a total of 80,298 cases and 3,245 deaths — in a nation of nearly 1.4 billion people where roughly 10 million die every year. The number of newly diagnosed patients has dropped to around 25 a day, with no cases of community spread reported since Wednesday.

Prayer for COVID19

Sovereign God, This new wayfaring traveler has decided to enter as many bodies, our home of the Holy Temple, as he can. May he sense that he is unwelcome by the host and pass on by. But should he, at some unannounced time, be able to enter by force, find himself being attacked on all sides by the ammunition of his host. May he become afraid of the prayers coming from the Spirit of God more powerful than he and cause him to be wounded so that all his power to harm would be diluted and he would retreat in a whimper. May he hightail it as fast and as far away as he can from his unwelcoming host. May we, the host, rejoice in your power, our Mighty God! You have defeated this unwelcome and harmful enemy until he is no more. Amen and Amen.

Sure, using the flawed data from China! I just read the article of 21M Chinese cellphone accounts disappeared, suggesting that as the true deaths in 3 months time! Maybe now he can run the numbers again using that data? Even West Virginia was lying about the number of cases there!

O Father, forgive us for these business model lies just to satisfy the stockholders. It’s all corruption. There is no truth to be found in business, government, media, science, etc. It must make you sick. Lord, I pray, that due to this virus stopping the hamster wheel people have been on mindlessly, we will take this time to hear your voice! Holy Spirit move on this country and restore it. I thank you that your Light shines brighter thru Darkness, and that the more lies we hear, the more your Truth stands alone to be seen. Open eyes, ears, hearts and minds to your Truth of salvation, hope, and peace. By the precious blood of Jesus I pray. Amen.

Lord, we thank you for your mercy. May you get all the glory. May we not take your mercy for granted or commend ourselves, going back to life as usual and ignoring you. We continue to pray for all those who have lost employment during this time. May your people show themselves generous to those who are in the least position to sustain these financial hits. May the Spirit of unity continue to grow. Hallowed be thy name.
In Jesus’ name, amen.
