ABS-CBN Late Night newscast Bandila aired on Monday, February 24, regarding this mysterious disease in the Ilocos Region of the Philippines, Pangasinan. This scary news which allegedly consumed the flesh of men (rot the skin and flesh) and will pierce through the bones. There was a scary thought connecting this incident to the prophecy of Vincent Selvakumar and Jesus Ministries founder Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj on April 2013 at Cuneta Astrodome during their 24th National Prayer Gathering.
"There is no truth to a rumor that a flesh-eating disease is spreading in the province," said Pangasinan provincial health officer Dr. Anna De Guzman in INQUIRER.net interview
De Guzman clarified that the first patient from Santa Barbara was a leper who suffered from an adverse reaction from a drug.
Meanwhile, the second patient from Villasis is ailed with psoriasis, the doctor added
She said the two cases were not that of the rare necrotizing fasciitis, a serious bacterial infection that spreads rapidly and destroys the body’s soft tissue, according to the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Check this Bandila News Video and next is the full Prophecy video and if you like, hop to 4:40 min which Pangasinan was mentioned.
It was noted that Prophet Sadhu became famous on this prophecy especially on Japan's Tsunami, Pampanga's Lahar and the recently Yolanda's devastation to Visayas area. It was also mentioned that it will spread to Cebu (See below video)
#PrayforPangasinan tops Twitter's Hashtag list.
Is the prophecy coming true? True or not, let us pray and hope this won't continue to happen. Let us hear your voice...
