WWE legend Hulk Hogan has controversially claimed the world may not need a vaccine for coronavirus because the pandemic is an act of God.
The dreaded virus which was first reported in Wuhan, China, has already claimed thousands of lives with nearly 1.4 million people contracting it globally.
With the numbers surging by day, major global activities including sports have been suspended in a bid to combat further spread.

But with scientists and medical experts holed up in laboratories in an attempt to find a cure for the virus, Hogan has suggested the epidemic may just be more than a medical puzzle.
The WWE Hall of Famer has compared COVID-19 to the Egyptian plagues, and contends God has "taken away everything we worship."
“In three short months, just like He did with the plagues of Egypt, God has taken away everything we worship," he observed.
“God said, ‘you want to worship athletes, I will shut down the stadiums. You want to worship musicians, I will shut down Civic Centers. You want to worship actors, I will shut down theaters," he continued.

Speaking in a lengthy Instagram post, the 66-year-old further noted the only solution to the crisis is for the world taking time to "have a personal revival" by focusing on Jesus.
“Maybe we don’t need a vaccine, Maybe we need to take this time of isolation from the distractions of the world and have a personal revival where we focus on the ONLY thing in the world that really matters. Jesus," he concluded.
