Pastors and church workers at Shiloh 2020 down with COVID19. A staff presided over by Pastor David Oyedepo at the Living Faith Church is reportedly currently fighting with COVID19.
The writer, Fisayo Soyombo, who posted this on Twitter, said the worker in question claims he contracted the virus while attending the church’s annual Shiloh program between 8 and 13 December. The said employee believes that some pastors who attended the class have since begun to exhibit illness symptoms.
Fisayo says the wife, daughter, and domestic employee of the worker have begun to exhibit viral disease symptoms.

His wife, daughter and domestic employee are exhibiting virus symptoms, including their puppy! There are also several pastors who attended Shiloh who are down with the flu.
This staff, held from 8 to 13 December, did not want to physically attend Shiloh, but had no choice because the church made it obligatory for workers. As can be seen from online images, without masks or social distancing, congregants mixed with each other.
The church has followed safety precautions in the past, such as social distancing, wearing facial masks and washing hands. There were no precautionary steps in effect at Shiloh, however.
The concern is that this worker knows that the pastors presently showing signs of the virus will not disclose this to the Founder & Presiding Bishop, which ensures that other possibly affected yet asymptomatic congregants of Shiloh will begin to mix without care with people.
With COVID, some winning pastors are down; they just hold it to themselves, but we can’t just fold our hands,” he said.” “His plea is that those who attended Shiloh isolate themselves and not spread the virus.
His dream is for people to be told that the festive season is no reason for them to attend crossover services physically without recourse to the safety protocol of COVID-19.”
