God forbid that it gets to this stage. If it does, Churches or any hall alike are the worst places for this. Hotels, are with rooms are likely the best. Your governors own such facilities. Large hotels and all the sorts scattered across the country can be transformed into treatment centres.

Think before you talk.
You want beds to be placed side by side with 100s of aick people. That will be a sorry site. Not healthy even for the unhealthy.
Sorry sight lol. China placed thousands together in School halls. For places where it needed demarcation, surgical garments where quickly installed. Use google, almost all their patients have recovered.

Do you have a hotel that has an independent power plant and can generate 24/7 electricity? I don't think so. What are you going to do with hotel resident who are trapped and have no where to go? House them in your parlour?

Churches have facilities that lie fallow about 6 out of 7 days usually. In a pandemic, they would be unusable for worship 100%. So why not use an existing facility to help patients which would obviously include Christians who may need beds to recover.

Bro please understand that the average Nigerian christian is 30% baked. It is the reality you need to come to terms with. The Christianity in this nation is loveless, corporate and selfish.

Many are not in tune with scripture or basic thinking. A country whose population would rather die without healthcare than use physical infrastructure of the church that would lay fallow during a crisis.

What did we then build a church for if it can't be used as a place of rescue?

Don't mind them. They cannot even pretend that they are loving people.

Show me, from the Bible, what Christianity used to be before grace happened.

Cite instances from the scripture of what Christian did in times of plague that supports your own idea of what they light to be doing right now in our generation.


Yes I remember the part of Bible that said "Run from me all you that are burden I can't give you rest..."

A gesture must not be requested of a good Christian, you do it cheerfully.

Imagine the church giving out their place of worship for the afflicted and at the end, some unbelievers give their lives to Christ.

What could be a better message than a practical gesture of love and accommodation?

Heaven rejoys when a single soul is won... Many souls could actually turn around if the church do the needful.

Forget the crazy part of it...

Any thinking Nigerian will not hope for a miracle from the government. You don't expect the government to build hospitals or stadium in weeks. Never, This is Nigeria.

I believe that's why the op suggested the possible way out.

Please I still have some chloroquine left in my shop.

You want to compare your country to a country that built a hospital in less than 10 days. Way to go

True children and prophets of the Lord will cry unto him to avert the coming virus and not make preparations to receive it. It's just like saying someone is sick and may die instead of praying that the calamity be averted you go ahead and buy a coffin.
Pray that the virus never comes to this level if you are a child of God.
Hezekiah was told that he would die but through prayers 15yrs was added to him on earth that's the level we operate on and not on the level of shallow Christians. Our God is a consuming fire and is greater that that so called virus so are his true children.
I don't expect shallow Christians and God haters to understand my writeup though.

Bros now is not the time to make sentimental statements. We just have to face the reality. The person raised a very valid point and 'God forbid' does not prevent everything. In a situation where the infection rises on a pandemic level in Nigeria (and let's not pretend it can't), converting religious buildings, which we all know are known to be notoriously large, is one of the best way to go in order to save time and resources. Be it mosques or churches, let it be used. We have seen cases in the holy books of when a kingdom is afflicted by either sickness or war, and they turn to the religious houses as a sanctuary to tend for the sick, so why not Nigeria?
shut the hell house boy we gave you independence and currently colonising you don't you know that I'm your master house negro
