Quarantine and isolation in a pandemic context. Biblical landmarks for current events
In the context of the Coronavirus pandemic, the message of the state or local administration, "Stay at home!", an urge assumed with responsibility by the members of Church, must mobilizing the people in limiting the spread of the virus.
