COVID-19: Lawrence Bacow And Wife Test Positive by HigherEd: 10:00pm On Mar 24
Harvard President Lawrence S. Bacow said he and his wife have tested positive for coronavirus.

Lawrence Bacow, right, and his wife Adele Fleet Bacow leave Harvard Yard after his inauguration as the 29th President of Harvard University, Friday, Oct. 5, 2018 in Cambridge, Mass.
"We started experiencing symptoms on Sunday—first coughs then fevers, chills, and muscle aches—and contacted our doctors on Monday," he said in a statement to the Harvard community Tuesday. "We were tested yesterday and just received the results a few minutes ago."

Bacow said he's not sure how he and his wife contracted the virus, but said "far fewer people crossed our paths recently than is usually the case" as they both began working from home on March 14.

"We will be taking the time we need to rest and recuperate during a two-week isolation at home," he added. "I am blessed with a great team, and many of my colleagues will be taking on more responsibility over the next few weeks as Adele and I focus on just getting healthy."

Earlier this month, Harvard announced it would be moving to online classes and asked students to move out of on campus housing.

It seems this virus is trying to make a statement that it can catch anybody. Imagine, catching the head of one of the leading research institutions in the world.

I do not intend to speak against your belief... But is this the first plague Earth has experienced? undecided
The Spanish flu, that occurred in 1918 - 1920, infected 500 million people (a quarter of the world's population at that time) and killed 50 million people.
Also, the Black Death a.k.a. The Great Bubonic Plague (1346 - 1353) was the worst pandemic recorded in history. It killed about 200 million people.

My point is, there were definitely a lot of people screaming: "The end is near" and "Prepare for rapture". COVID-19's death toll is not yet up to a hundred thousand; and you guys are flooding the social media with these 'rapture warnings'.
I wonder what you lot would do during those previous dark times undecided
No offense, but just take a chill pill and shut it tongue
The least anyone could do right now is to stay home

Nigerians must totally stay at home. I learned from a reliable source that coronavirus is an airborne disease. It's either you use a face masks or stay indoors.
Also, using handglooves is the best option. Washing of hands must be done by running water with soap and not in a bowl.

Our challenges determines, the level of our Spirtitualit

I Elidaxziel,. I will take this virus out.

Infact I didn't bother checking about it because I will kill it. If it come close to me..

You human should wake up and increase your Spirtituality.

When you have spirtual powers,. You will know that Virus are the easiest thing to deal with..

All you need to do is easy, just change the signature, and bypass the restriction then the virus will not be able to live in your body not for a second

Look at you today, running around because of a single strand of virus


I pity humanity,

They waste so much time on stupid things

I am not a respecter of any human

Because the effect of power in me is more bigger than taking cocaine

Anyways I can only wish, the best for the world..


Corona virus is just like a warning up, believe more deadly virus are coming,..

It is well

I pray the CREATOR AND THE SAVIOR intervene Quickly,.

❤️❤️❤️

People need to adhere to the lockdown/ self isolation so we can break the circle of infection. If we all stay at home, we will all know our status within 14 days without infecting others.

Let’s do it for the people we love, God bless.

Isaiah 26 verse 20

KJV:Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.

ESV:Come, my people, enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the fury has passed by.

NIV:Go, my people, enter your rooms and shut the doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until his wrath has passed by.

AMP:Come, my people, enter your chambers and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the [Lord’s] wrath is past.

My Version: Hear, my fellow nairalander, stay at home and stock your home: hide yourselves for few weeks until God's wrath upon the wicked has passed by.
