Social-distancing measures, such as banning public gatherings, including church services, of any size, are common responses to epidemics or the threat of epidemics. The article seems to indicate that the churches are making the choice at this point to suspend services and masses.Notably: "Ningbo Diocese in Zhejiang province has asked parish priests not to distribute Communion on tongues from Jan. 22 as a preventive measure. 'The church members shall receive the Eucharist in their hands,' it said in a notice seeking parishioners’ prayers to end the epidemic.
Perhaps the communist commissars of Red China ha e other reasons to suppress Holy Mass. Just saying...
I think there was a study in the 80s or 90s that said there is nothing to fear. Hmmm....If countries that suspend the common chalice are anti-science, and they also subscribe to climate catastrophe hyperbole, maybe there is a connection? Oh, where is a priest when you need one to explain such matters of science and epidemiology?
Scientists, in this case clinicians and epidemiologist, are the ones to explain it.Some priests do a good job referencing them. Some, however, want to base their choices on phobias.
Given the hysteria of "modern science," a Priest is about as reliable as a scientist.
Idk, but there is the Wuhan Institute of Virology, that engages in "research" for China. Wuhan seems to be where this outbreak started. Now millions are quarantined. I've never seen a response like this ever. This might actually be bad, and I am not, nor ever have been, a germophobe.We will know in just a couple of days if it is contained.
