We are told of His protection in Psalm 91 where it says that even though 10,000 die around us, it will not come near us. ( the people of God ).
Why not ? The Psalms say simply because we love and Trust God.
We will be as the Hebrews in Exodus 12 where the angel of death PASSED OVER those who had the blood covering. Many died around them , but they were protected.
All those in the Land of Goshen ( God's people ) were spared all of the plagues.
In Mark 16:18 we are told that poisons will be harmless against us, especially as we call upon the name of Jesus.
So while iodine pills may help and other remedies, the BEST protection is the blood covering of Jesus and keeping ourselves in the love of God no matter what.
