Question of the current season: Why do we have pandemic sickness and diseases in the world?
A pandemic is a name used for a disease that spreads across a large area, like a country, a continent, or even the whole world. The 2019 world-wide pandemic passed from person to person as people travelled from place to place both locally and internationally. As I write this answer to your question, over a half a million people around the world have been infected and almost 27,000 people have transitioned from their physical body to their spiritual destination of either heaven or hell (or have passed away).
Why do we have to suffer through world-wide pandemic sickness? What is the cause of pandemic disease? These are good questions. The answer is: no human being really knows for sure. But there are some things we do know that can help us understand why world-wide calamities happen.
1. The most horrible pandemic of all pandemics is called “death”. We know death was created from sin (or disobedience to God’s will), because Romans 5:12 says, “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:”. Did you notice the part of this verse that says death is passed from one man to many? This sounds like a pandemic to me.
2. We know that God can send plagues or diseases to a country, because Joshua 24:5 says, “Also I sent Moses and Aaron, and I plagued Egypt, according to what I did among them. Afterward I brought you out.” Leviticus 26:21 says, “Then, if you walk contrary to Me, and are not willing to obey Me, I will bring on you seven times more plagues, according to your sins.” Did you notice God said, “I plagued Egypt”? Did you see the part of the verse that says if we are not willing to obey God, He will bring more plagues according to our sins? Wow! That means the root cause of pandemics is again; “sin”.
Remember God is sovereign and can do whatever He needs to do with His creation (us). If God has rules, and we, His creation, break those rules, what is the result? What if an entire country, or a continent, or the whole world breaks God’s rules (or sins against Him)? What will be the results?
But what if we change? What if we repent (or apologize to God)? The results are amazing, because Exodus 23:25 says, “So you shall serve the Lord your God, and He will bless your bread and your water. And I will take sickness away from the midst of you.” And Exodus 15:26 says, “…., “If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you.”.
Here is your answer to the question: The cause of a pandemic disease is most likely either “our collective sins” or an act of God in response to our “collective sins”. Only God knows, but God knows what is best for the world!
Through the scriptures, we know the best cure for pandemic diseases (in addition to what God guides the medical experts of the earth to create) is serving the Lord, obeying His will, doing what is right, and keeping His commandments.
The best way to do this is to believe what John 1:29 says, “The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!”. And Matthew 22:37 says, " Jesus said to him, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
If you accept Jesus as your Savior, He will atone (or make amends and pay) for your sins, which will heal sickness, save your soul, and heal our land! Start applying this cure in your home today! If you do, it will be the greatest Victory of your life! Amen!

Psalm 91 New King James Version (NKJV)
1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”
3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the [a]fowler
And from the perilous pestilence.
4 He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and [b]buckler.
5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
Revelation 3:10 Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.

You have two choices.
1. Trust in God, or
2. Trust in man.
If you pick number 2,
then "man" is your god.
Think about it.
