“Covid cure” pastor dies

A Cameroon pastor and former presidential candidate has left his followers wondering whether they caught Covid-19 from him.

Frankline Ndifor died of the virus after holding “Covid cure” prayers for hundreds of his followers.

“This is a pastor that has been laying hands [on the sick] and claiming that he cures Covid-19,” follower Rigobert Che told VOA News.

Police used force to get medics into his house as supporters blocked entrances, singing that Ndifor was on a spiritual retreat with God and would be resurrected.

Medics are asking all those who had contact with Ndifor to be tested for Covid-19.
