Is Corona a Wake-Up Call?

After witnessing the second plane hit the second twin tower on 9/11, I flew to Bnei-Brak to seek the counsel of my late relative Rav Avrohom Genechovski, zt”l. During my stay he quoted a verse from Tanach that says buildings are not permanent structures—though I don’t remember the exact verse. I can’t seek his advice anymore to frame [the coronavirus], so I am left to the great rabbanim to find my way. It seems everyone believes this is a wake-up call, as it’s a worldwide plague, and many quote the opinion in the Gemara that before Moshiach comes, dever will strike the world. At the very least, it seems teshuva is in order to assure a smooth transition into the next phase of the world order.
