Keeping the faith during COVID-19

Why did God allow the pandemic to happen? How can Muslims observe Ramadan; Christians celebrate Easter, Hindus the Tamil New Year and Sikhs Vaisakhi; or Buddhists mark Vesak Day, Jews the Passover, and Baha'is the Ridvan - with safe distancing measures in place in Singapore? Together with the Taoists, who marked the Qing Ming just before the 'circuit breaker'; the Jains likewise with Ayambil Oli; and the Parsis, who practise Zoroastrianism, all these official religions in Singapore have had significant dates fall during the coronavirus outbreak.
