Ebola vs Ps.91

Posted on

In view of the epidermic of ebola viral disease (EVD),I urge us all to defuse the panic. My nanny woke me at 3am cause someone called to ask her to bathe with hot salt water before 6am as a prevention. So did my mother in law.

1. Salt and water neither prevent nor cure the disease. Salt may actually be harmful by causing tiny bruises on skin for viruses to enter

2. Excessive salt consumption can lead to hypertension and death. Already deaths were recorded in Abuja.

3. Few people have the disease for now. You can only contact it from someone who is very ill. No need to avoid people on the road.

4. Advise the sick to seek medical help rather than self medicate

5. Any sypmtom of high fever, vomitting and diarrhoea should be reported to the health authorities. Do not try to touch the bodyfluids of the sick or any corpse.

6. Wash hands with soap and water especially after shaking hands or touching surfaces others touch. Sanitizers are good but water and soap are better. After washing, close the tap and door with your elbow or paper napkin.

7. Meditate on the word and proclaim it daily.

Ps.91 says “We shall not fear ebola by day nor boko haram by night. Under his immunity shall we trust. He will cover us with his vaccine. With long life will he satisfy us”

Keep praying for health workers, for courage and protection.

God bless and keep you.
Cheers.
Dr. N

    It is well with all our health workers.

    Regardless of the scare, your profession still remains enviable.

    We LOVE the doctors and nurses!

    Psalms 91:6-8
    Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness,
    nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
    Though a thousand fall at your side,
    though ten thousand are dying around you,
    these evils will not touch you.
    Just open your eyes,
    and see how the wicked are punished.

    Dr N on Psalm 91 and Gods LIVING word/Rhema we must stand. Sorry to say, this virus will kill less people than road accident, other sicknesses like typhoid and malaria even childbirth has ever done in the history of our nation(today God saved a very close person from a terrible accident). But the hype on it is much more and also the fear factor more than the facts BUT we must not be afraid. They that know their God must be strong and DO exploit.

    I pray for courage for health workers and as many as know the Lord in that sector to stand in FAITH at this given time. May God keep you too 🙂 amen

    Thanks Doc I have actually been looking for a means to reach u thru ur ” ask Dr N ” forum but I couldn’t find it, thanks for brooching on this topic but I wanted to ask u what ur suggestions were for someone who is looking to vacation in Nigeria for 3 weeks from north america, what will be ur suggestions to come or not to come as there has been so much scare around the Ebola virus.

      If it’s 3 weeks, I’ll say, postpone it. Not due to fear but, wisdom. The disease is limited but d threat may be on for longer. If it was business, , I’ll have said, no problem. I think u may not want a vacation marred by d threat of contacting a disease
