In times of trouble, the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, would call upon all Jews to increase their Torah study, prayer, and acts of charity.
Traditionally, Jews have turned to the book of Psalms to pray in times of sorrow. We are taught that these Psalms have great power to bring healing to the world.
Perhaps you would consider adding the following prayer to your daily prayer during this crisis:
אַחֵינוּ כָּל בֵּית יִשְׂרָאֵל הַנְּתוּנִים בַּצָּרָה וּבַשִּׁבְיָה הָעוֹמְדִים בֵּין בַּיָּם וּבֵין בַּיַּבָּשָׁה הַמָּקוֹם יְרַחֵם עֲלֵיהֶם וְיוֹצִיאֵם מִצָּרָה לִרְוָחָה וּמֵאֲפֵלָה לְאוֹרָה וּמִשִּׁעְבּוּד לִגְאֻלָּה הָשָׁתָא בַּעֲגָלָא וּבִזְמַן קָרִיב וְאִמְרוּ אָמֵן
Our brothers and sisters the whole house of Israel, who are in distress and captivity who wander over sea and over land — may God have mercy on them, and bring them from distress to comfort, from darkness to light, from slavery to redemption, now, swiftly, and soon.
