It was never God's intention for us to have disease and death. His original intention was for us to enjoy perfect peace and communion with Him. The wages of sin is death, but Jesus died to pay the ransom. His resurrection brings us great hope of eternal life. Death isn't the end.
This current situation with the virus has a lot of people scared and worried, and some people devastated because of unexpected, untimely loss. It may have some people questioning where God is in all this and if He even cares. The truth is that God is Our Healer. He's the one who sent His only Son in the first place. He definitely cares. He sees you. He knows the pain. He loves you, and He wants you to trust Him.
Here is an encouraging word and maybe a few answers, during this difficult time.
We praise you for being Our Healer. We humbly ask that you would bind up every infirmity and release wisdom, revelation, healing, strength, peace, and comfort by the power of the Holy Spirit through the blood of Jesus Christ. Please shine your face towards us, our families, our loved ones, and particularly the people that don't know you yet. Please put a hedge of protection around us until this passes. Please let it pass over us. Thank you for being our refuge. We ask these things in accordance with Your will. In Jesus' name, Yeshua, the Messiah. Amen.

“saying, "If you will diligently listen to the voice of the Lord your God, and do that which is right in his eyes, and give ear to his commandments and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you that I put on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, your healer."”

“And when Jesus entered Peter's house, he saw his mother-in-law lying sick with a fever. He touched her hand, and the fever left her, and she rose and began to serve him. That evening they brought to him many who were oppressed by demons, and he cast out the spirits with a word and healed all who were sick. This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah: "He took our illnesses and bore our diseases."”
Matthew 8:14-17 ESV
“Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning the body and blood of the Lord. Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself. That is why many of you are weak and ill, and some have died. But if we judged ourselves truly, we would not be judged. But when we are judged by the Lord, we are disciplined so that we may not be condemned along with the world.”
