Despite 2018 shaping up to be one of the worst flu seasons since 2009, with the Centers for Disease Control recently stating hospitalizations from flu are the highest they have been in nearly 10 years, co-founder of Kenneth Copeland Ministries in Texas Barbara Copeland urged people to pray away the flu. "And don't receive it when somebody threatens you with, 'Everyone's getting the flu!'"

In the video, Copeland warns watchers not to believe the fact that the flu is spreading, and says "we already had our shot [.] Jesus himself gave us a flu shot, he redeemed us from the curse of flu".

'So get on the word, stay on the word, and if you say, "Well, I don't have any symptoms of the flu", well great, that's the way it's supposed to be, ' she said. "Put words - inoculate yourself with the word of God". "Inoculate yourself with the word of God".

Copeland is among the handful of bold-faced names in the evangelical community to have a relationship with Trump, a list that also includes former Republican Rep.
