According to Phineas Parkhurst Quimby
Let us go back to 1860, a time when one man decided to revolutionize the way we deal with disease and death. His knowledge was based on his overcoming consumption (what we now call tuberculosis). He realized that the “modern” way of looking at health and healing was built on a fallacy: medical diagnosis and treatment were only alleviating the symptoms and not curing the disease. In order to remove the body’s illnesses, PPQ postulated that the assumptions and thinking of the patient needed to be changed completely. He saw that how a person thought can positively or negatively affect their health.
God is the first great cause of everything, the answer of every question, the truth of every problem. For reasons best known to himself, he made man, made him in his own image, male and female, created he them. The material world is consistent with the natural man, and a necessary condition, as I have said before, in order to develop science. Now, to begin with our natural existence, as we call it, is diseases and when we die scientifically, we obtain the answer to it. Disease of the body, as we call it, is error, and all error is disease. So you see there are various kinds. In the early ages, mankind was in a more natural state, and there was less disease of any kind, for the reason that there was less activity. From generation to generation; the accumulation of knowledge, false and true increased, and accordingly men thought more and more.
Disease of the body was an invention of man, originally a simple humbug, designed to deceive the people. Finally the leaders like all ignorant and superstitious men, were frightened at their own shadow, and thus disease took an identity. A character was attributed to it and it was invested with power, to destroy.
This is the same disease that with strength, accumulated by its success for ages, now talks around the world, seeking whom it may devour. More misery is caused by this devil than by any other. It divides itself into numberless branches, each branch partaking of all the characteristics of the original tree.Quimby, Phineas.

Now, just to put the cat among the canaries, the fox among the chickens, let us look at his next statements through the lens of COVID-19:
Mind is matter, ideas are mind, hence, ideas are matter. Men create ideas which are matter. These ideas have a real existence in the spirit world, and just according to the nature that is attributed to them and the fear that men have of them, their power is.
Fear of an idea thus created, on the part of its creator, condenses into matter so that it might be seen even by the natural eye–a creation, composed of the loathsome characteristics conceived of by the person’s own [belief], an offspring of an excited and degraded mind. Such an idea is disease, the child of the Devil. This disease was first one simple, uncompounded idea, but when that finally was pushed into an identity, when men were once afraid of it, then it grew rapidly, like a poisonous weed, and derived its sustenance from the very life blood to which it owed its existence. All its horrible characteristics it draws from the mind of men; who could they only understand what they are doing, would plant a good seed in their soil or mind which could bear no fruit fit for disease to live on,–and thus it would starve to death.
Its characteristics embrace those most fearful to mankind. It has cruelty–for is not pain cruel? It is vengeful–for if we break a law which this devil has set up, will it not take its revenge? It is insidious, like a serpent, and has enveloped us in its coils and planted its sting in our hearts, before we are aware of its presence.
Then the venom courses through our veins and gradually it cuts every tie which could bind us to our friends and happiness and at last drags its victim down to the jaws of death, where the blackness of eternal midnight awaits him.
But mind is matter, and its form can be annihilated–To understand ourselves, what we are composed of and how we act, is not an easy task after man has gone so far astray.–but it can be understood and will be, now that we have sifted out old ideas, and found that there is no virtue in them.Quimby, Phineas.

Do you see where I’m going with this? When the W.H.O. named this disease COVID-19 and then declared it a pandemic, the seeds of worldwide destruction were planted. And newscasts every day and night, watered the fertile soil of our minds, until we could think of nothing else.
And then we wonder why it affects some people and not everyone? The real vaccine should have been the Truth that this is a modern ‘humbug’ (deceptive or false talk or behaviour). But, now that the world is so invested in eradicating the disease, there is no way forward except by getting the medical vaccinations and changing our social behaviour, seemingly forever.
Now do you see why I called this disease “The Love Bug”?
