A new myth sweeping across the country has it that strands of human hair found between pages of the holy book are the cure to the novel coronavirus.
The source of this so-called prophecy is unknown but has managed to reach a large number of Ghanaians who are desperate to see the outbreak disappear.
Whilst some say a little girl fell unconscious after the National Fasting and Prayer day which was held on Wednesday, March 25, others also say the prophecy is sourced from a prophet.
The direction of the prophecy is to find a strand of human hair in the middle of pages in the bible, put it in water and drink it.
This took social media by storm and many users went on the mission to find the miracle hair:
Dear Christians Twitter, please i didn’t find the hair strand in my Bible but i found it in my Quran and the 48 laws of power, can i still soak it in water and drink? pic.twitter.com/EU6v1ixSza

As usual, I have questions of my own: could it be that a fallen hair may have landed in the bible when they read it? Why is it found only in old bibles and not new ones?
Did you find one too?
