Shiloh 2020: How Attendance Compulsion Caused Winners’ Chapel's Pastors To Contract COVID-19

Shiloh 2020: How Attendance Compulsion Caused Winners’ Cha

A worker at the Winners' Chapel International, owned by Bishop David Oyedepo, is down with COVID-19 after attending Shiloh 2020.

AllNews reports that according to popular Nigerian Investigative journalist, Fisayo Soyombo on his verified social media handles on Thursday, the pastor's wife, daughter and domestic staffer are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 — even their dog.

Several pastors who attended Shiloh are down with the virus too, Soyombo's update stated.

Read the full COVID-19 update post-Shiloh 2020 below, as shared by Soyombo:

This worker didn’t want to physically attend Shiloh, held from December 8 to 13, but had no alternative because the church made it compulsory for workers.

As can be seen from internet videos, congregants mingled with one another without masks or social distancing.

In the past, the church observed safety protocol such as social distancing, wearing of face masks and hand washing.

However, at Shiloh, no precautionary measures were in place. “People were just careless,” he said.

"Yes, many people didn’t come this year because of COVID but those in attendance were careless.”

The problem is this worker knows the pastors currently exhibiting symptoms of the virus will not admit this to the Founder and Presiding Bishop of the church, meaning other potentially infected but asymptomatic Shiloh congregants might continue mixing with people without caution.

Some Winners pastors are down with COVID; they’re just keeping it to themselves but we can’t just fold our hands,” he said.

The plea from him is that those who attended Shiloh “should try to isolate themselves and try not to pass on the virus”.

His wish is for people to get educated that the festive season is no excuse for them to physically attend crossover services without recourse to COVID-19 safety protocol.
