‘I’m covered in Jesus’ blood’: Churchgoer isn't worried about getting sick because she's Christian (VIDEO)
A churchgoer in Ohio was confronted by CNN for attending church services during the coronavirus pandemic.
"Can I ask you about your decision to go to church to be inside that building?" reporter Gary Tuchman asked her.
"I wouldn't be anywhere else," she responded.
“Aren’t you worried you could impact other people if you get sick inside?” he asked.
“No, I’m covered in Jesus’ blood,” the woman replied. “I’m covered in Jesus’ blood!”
“There are other people who don’t go to this church who you might infect,” Tuchman pointed out.
“I go to the grocery store every day!” she said defiantly. “I’m in Walmart, Home Depot. Look at those people. They could get me sick!”
“But they’re not because I’m covered in his blood,” she said, getting the last word in before driving off.
While most of the country is under a stay-at-home order, a few states have considered religious services "essential." This allows for people to pray without practicing social distancing in public.
In addition to Ohio, those states so far include Florida, Michigan, New Mexico, Delaware, Texas and West Virginia.
