Christian blogger Lori Alexander, who wrote the bestselling lifestyle guide The Power of a Transformed Wife, says that she doesn’t fear the coronavirus and confesses she’s “not a hand washer” in a controversial new post.
Alexander, 60, claims that she has only recently started getting colds and she treats them by drinking elderberry juice. “I am not a hand washer since I’m not afraid of germs,” she says, adding “I have dry skin and I greatly dislike the feel of dry hands.”
She says that while the virus is spreading rapidly, killing thousands and causing stock markets to crash worldwide, there are more dangerous things to worry about.
Abortions and sex changes are, she believes, are: “more destructive to our culture than this virus or the stock market crashing.”
She speculates: “Maybe God will use this virus for good. Our culture needs a good wake up call.”
Alexander thinks that the pandemic could inspire people to reflect on their own lifestyles, adding: “We’re all going to die someday and many times things such as this cause people to examine their lives more closely.”

However, she downplays the coronavirus threat, saying: “Remember, this virus is NOTHING close to being like the bubonic plague or polio, yet many are acting as if it were.”
She stresses that the virus is most dangerous to the elderly, claiming that “no children from zero to nine have died from it and most children have mild cases.”
Akiko Iwasaki at Yale University. warns that even though children aren’t tending to get as ill as older people, that doesn’t mean they aren’t contributing to the spread of the new coronavirus. “There’s a danger of being complacent about the children not getting severely ill,” she says.
The virus continues to spread around the world. In Italy, a paramedic aged 47 died from the disease over the weekend and a British man aged 59 also sadly succumbed to the disease in the early hours of Saturday morning.
Nevertheless, Alexander insists that she will take only minimal precautions and leave the decision of whether she lives or dies up to her God: “I will try to not touch my face if I haven’t washed my hands,” she says.
“I don’t eat junk food and have a lot of elderberry syrup ready to go. I take vitamin C and D every day. I do what I can and leave the rest in the Lord’s hands.”
