Understanding the Church's response to the Cornovirus crisis

In dramatic form.  Here are the players and what they represent:

Johnny Smith (played by Christopher Walken): The World and it's reaction to the virus as dictated by medical professionals and government leaders
Greg Stillson (played by Martin Sheen): the Church leadership and its message that to live is Christ, to die is gain
The baby: the deposit of Faith once for all delivered to the saints
The photographer: the world, especially the younger generations, who are watching

With that summary of the primary cast members in the scene, roll'em:

A cheap shot on my part?  Perhaps. But you decide.  What is the Church banning Christians from Church with nothing but a here and now focused worst case scenario put forward by doctors and government officials look like to young people already immersed in a secular, materialist, atheistic age?   I suggest it doesn't look much different.
