Prayers specifically for those suffering from the coronavirus and its effects, one could pray Psalm 91, which invokes the Lord specifically against plagues. 

Acts of Faith, Hope, and Love can also be helpful to drive out the fear that is rampant at this time. These also help us all to rely on the Lord more, which is always and everywhere the best solution to any problem.
