The River Church in Tampa doesn’t care about the guidelines put out by the White House and the CDC that has asked everyone to not gather in groups larger than 10 people.

On Sunday, The River Church was packed with worshipers and Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne, who presides over the church has been defiant about not closing down despite the current spread of illness in the country.

According to Howard-Browne the church has machines that will instantly kill any virus:

The pastor has also claimed that he was going to cure the current illness the same way he cured zika a few years ago.

Two weeks ago Howard-Browne told constituents to continue shaking hands because they’re not ‘pansies”.

It is worth noting that Florida governor Ron DeSantis has been vehemently against a statewide lockdown which has allowed The River Church to stay open.
