Shincheonji stated on the 29th June 2020 that Chairman Lee sent a one-page letter on an A4 paper on the 27th June 2020 to thank the members. Through the letter titled, “To the beloved members of Daegu Church,” Chairman Lee said, “I was delighted upon hearing the news of your intent to actively participate in donating plasma (blood) for the development of the vaccine for the cure of COVID-19. I believe that you are the ones who received the blood of Jesus.”
He added, “I am very thankful to the government, which took charge of preventing the spread of COVID-19 and providing treatment for it. This is not something our church could resolve,” and, “I know that you [Shincheonji members in Daegu] have gathered your hearts in our collective wish to free all the people of the world from the pains of this disease.”
Chairman Lee also stated through this message, “This is the work that needs to be done as citizens of this country and as true believers. It is keeping the command of Jesus of loving your neighbor as yourself (Mt 22:39), and I am thankful that you have gathered your hearts for this good work and in making this decision that is like the light,” and, “Let us all pray in the name of Jesus to exterminate COVID-19 (Refer to Jn 14:13-14).”
Earlier, Shincheonji Church of Jesus has announced that over 4,000 members of the church, who has recovered from COVID-19, are willing to donate plasma (liquid portion of blood, with 55% of blood being plasma, 45% red blood cells) for developing a new treatment against the virus.
The amount of blood will be about US$83 billion worth if the 4,000 patients donate 500 ml individually, according to the current transaction in the United States. “It is difficult to accelerate developing a vaccine for COVID-19 with only 200 recovered patients who expressed their will to donate blood. The massive donation from the recovered patients in the Shincheonji Church will solve the problem of the lack of blood for research,” said an official from Green Cross Pharma, a biopharmaceutical company in South Korea.
While it has been difficult to find plasma donors, Shincheonji members’ mass plasma donation can speed up the COVID-19 vaccine development process. Shincheonji members had been facing public criticism that they caused mass COVID-19 infection in the beginning when the virus started to spread. Shincheonji explained, “Chairman wants to thank the government for treating their members, while also thanking Daegu Church for volunteering with plasma donation to repay the government’s effort.”
