Falun Gong Protects Believers During Pandemic
(Minghui.org) After the coronavirus broke out in Wuhan in the winter of 2019, due to the Chinese government’s efforts to cover up the outbreak, the nearby city of Chibi was ill-prepared. While 200 infections were reported, the real number was much higher. There were several incidents of Falun Gong (also called Falun Dafa) practitioners and people who believed in the auspicious phrases “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” staying safe from the virus.
Prison Inmates Infected, Falun Gong Practitioner Not Affected
Ms. Wang is an elderly Falun Gong practitioner in Chibi. She was arrested and sentenced to one year in prison for talking about Falun Gong in public.
As the coronavirus spread like wildfire in the area, many prisoners were infected. All the prisoners were quarantined in a hotel. Ms. Wang was put in a room with two other prisoners assigned to monitor her.
Soon one of the two inmates tested positive for coronavirus. A few days later, the other inmate also tested positive. Ms. Wang was unaffected.
Two different inmates were sent to stay and monitor Ms. Wang. They too were eventually infected with the virus. Ms. Wang was again unaffected.
Ms. Wang’s immunity to the virus caused quite a stir in the prison. Some prisoners believed that Falun Gong practitioners were not ordinary people and did not want to get involved in the persecution of practitioners anymore. The last two inmates the prison sent to monitor Ms. Wang were not abusive. They were not infected by the virus.
In ancient times, Chinese people believed that plagues do not infect people blindly. As those who persecute peaceful cultivators are committing crimes, it follows that they would not be spared from plagues.
Symptoms Disappeared after Believing “Falun Dafa is Good”
Prior to the outbreak in Wuhan, Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Yi and her husband accompanied Ms. Yi’s brother for his emphysema treatment at Wuhan Pulmonary Hospital.
Soon, Ms. Yi and her family noticed that people at the hospital had started to wear surgical masks. They tried to buy some too but could not find them anywhere in town. What they did not know was that Wuhan Pulmonary Hospital was appointed as the treatment center for coronavirus patients.
The extent and true statistics of the pandemic were not known to the public. Ms. Yi’s brother was transferred to another unit for an unexplained reason. During this whole time, Ms. Yi and her husband slept on gurneys in the hallway and used the bathrooms on the patient floor.
The attending physician convinced them to go home: “Why don’t you take your brother home for now? His condition is not something that can be treated quickly, and you don’t want to catch something else.”
When they returned home, Ms. Yi began to have chills, a cough, and gastrointestinal symptoms. All of her discomforts went away after doing Falun Gong exercises. Ms. Yi’s husband had difficulty breathing. He did not practice Falun Gong, so Ms. Yi suggested that he sincerely recite. “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He soon recovered as well.
Family of Three’s Recovery
Ms. Bing’s brother, his brother’s wife, and their son used to practice Falun Gong before the Chinese Communist Party began its brutal persecution of Falun Gong in 1999. Out of fear, the family of three stopped practicing.
All three of them were infected with the coronavirus, and Ms. Bing’s brother was put on a ventilator.
Ms. Bing told them to sincerely recite, “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” All three of them recovered.
