The God drug, especially without critical thinking, does not protect against COVID-19

Whether in Brooklyn (USA), Jerusalem (Israel-Palestine), or Tripoli (Lebanon), over-religious people are literally a danger public to others in times of pandemics.

The pictures below show people defying strict measures of social distancing, social isolation, and as of tomorrow internal regional isolation (in Lebanon).

Why don’t these people pray at home, virtually (in groups, as needed) or by themselves (meditating)?

We can always think that this may not be a good evolutionary strategy. However, it is not just about them. They are putting others at risk and this is unacceptable in the circumstances.
