Coronavirus fear is everywhere, but Christians should have faith instead. The Creator God is our Father, His Son is our Savior, and He totally controls this novel virus. Jesus is the Master of disease. He would say, Be not afraid, only believe. We see this pandemic as an opportunity to trust God, examine ourselves, rejoice in His promises, encourage each other, love our neighbors, be a witness to the world, and maintain a Christian work ethic and productivity.
We obey the laws and even the requests and recommendations of our rulers, so we use in-home worship by various electronic means and follow their suggestions for hygiene and distancing. Let us pray for these rulers as we are commanded for prudent wisdom in the weighty decisions they must make.

The LORD expects you to use reasonable means to protect yourself, but He will do the rest. If you go beyond reasonable means, then you are trusting yourself and your means, rather than trusting Him.
Health, Sickness, and Death Slides
Sin brought sickness and death into a perfect world. Unbelievers have no hope beyond this life, so they exalt their bodies over their spirits and time over eternity. The Bible has rules for us to have the right perspective in these crucial things.
