Meanwhile, coronavirus in Enugu was recorded on the day Prophet TB Joshua said the pandemic would end.
Newsone Nigeria recalls that Prophet TB Joshua, the founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) had revealed during a church sermon last month, that the pandemic will be over by the end of March.
“This month, 27th, it will be over, by the end of this month, whether we like it or not, no matter the medicine they have produced to cure whatever, it will go the way it came,” the cleric had said.
