Prayer #186: For North Carolina's COVID-19 Cases
As of yesterday, North Carolina has reported a total of 206,090 cases of COVID-19 since the beginning of the outbreak of the virus. To date, there have been 3,440 deaths from the Coronavirus in our state. A piece of good news is that the state's positivity rate---the percentage of COVID-19 tests that come back positive---is down to 4.5% as of yesterday, the lowest in more than a month. Presently, there are 917 patients in North Carolina that are hospitalized for COVID-19. There have been 2,974,052 tests for the virus in NC. If each test was for one person, this would be over 28% of the state's population, although there are undoubtedly some people that have been tested more than once.
Pray that the cases of COVID-19 virus would begin to rapidly fall in North Carolina. Pray for those administering and interpreting the COVID testing in our state. Pray for God's protection over the most vulnerable people in North Carolina--the elderly, and others with respiratory, heart, and diabetes conditions.
Ps. 103:2-3: "Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases."
