We’ve pulled together a variety of healing ideas for contagion. Check out the perspectives below. 

O Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me. O Lord, ... thou hast kept me alive, … Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: ... To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever. (Psalms 30)

Words of comfort

Mary Baker Eddy, Miscellaneous Writings 1883-1896 "A calm, Christian state of mind is a better preventive of contagion than a drug, or than any other possible sanative method; and the "perfect Love" that "casteth out fear" is a sure defense" (p. 229).

A hymn

Lo, He sent His Word and healed them,
Still that Word of God is here.
Still its tender healing message
Speaks to every listening ear.
Truth divine, that overcometh
All the ills that seem to be,
In our hearts Thy Word abiding,
We may know Thee and be free.
