— Archbishop Job of Telmessos
Some coronavirus sceptics have a rather magic approach, considering that their status, or their faith, is not concerned by the virus. This has been noticed within different world religions. Thus, coronavirus skepticism is often linked with religious fanaticism. Such fundamentalists consider that their place of worship is somehow miraculously protected from the virus, and therefore not concerned by the health restrictions imposed by the civil authorities, which they therefore ignore. They criticize the intervention of State in their religious worship, even though this is done for the common good. Unfortunately, the coronavirus is not stopped by religious convictions, and thus, we have witnessed some synagogues, mosques, temples, churches and monasteries around the world becoming clusters of propagation of the disease, thus fostering illness and even death of numerous people within the society at large. In these cases, religion has been pointed out by some other fanatics as being a threat for society.
