Post pictures to help us guide you better. Meanwhile, apply a systemic fungicide. Mancozeb is a contact fungicide and it protects plants before the fungi enters the plant. Once they are in, manco will not stop them. Normally, it is good to apply both a systemic and contact fungicide before diseases appear. Some systemic fungicides include metalaxyl (Bluebolt, CocoaForce) and Hexaconazole (Control Total).

Those leaf distortions look like a viral disease to me. Uproot and destroy plants with that symptoms. The spots on the leaves is bacteria leaf spot. I once encountered it with my peeper seedlings. I used burgundy' mixture, mancozeb and hexaconazole to fight it, combined with prunning affected leaves and throwing them out of the farm. It eventually disappeared with the coming of dry season. Normally, it would be difficult to control it in the rainy season. It can be seedborne too. Where did you buy your seeds?

Hat Track and Control Total for Hexaconazole. I make Burgundy's mixture myself. Here is an instruction from wikipedia: "Burgundy mixture is made by combining dissolved copper sulphate and dissolved sodium carbonate. Dissolved copper sulphate ratios generally range from 1:1 to 1:18. Sodium carbonate is generally added in higher quantities and at a dissolved ratio of 1:1.5."
.
How many plants do you have? And how is your yield like.

I have like 6000 stands.... I got the seedlings from two different sources, the first part is fruiting very well, I think it's not really affected by diseases because it has over grown ,some were already flowering before I trans planted them and it survived with less attract by diseases ,but the other one a transplanted at a early stage were seriously affected by fungi and virus...but I think it's because I  was ignorant of the precautions before I started..

Ok here is a simpler explanation: To make 1% burgundy mixture,
1. measure out 100g copper sulphate (CuSO4) and mix it in 5L of water.
2. measure out 125g of washing soda and mix in 5L water.
3. Slowly add the washing soda solution into the CuSO4 solution while stirring.
.
To make 0.5% mix, use 50g CuSO4 in 5L water and 62.5g washing soda in 5L water.
.
Start with the 0.5% mix and then later switch to the 1% mix. One good thing about this fungicide is that it stick to leaves strongly and rain will find it very difficult to wash out. Don't combine it in the same tank with other pesticides because of incompatibility. Use it before disease appear because it is a contact fungicide.
.
Have you destroyed those peppers with viral symptoms?

Welcome. In case of next time, fertilize well. A well fertilized plant can handle pests and diseases better. Apply 1 or 2 handful of manure weekly, the more the better. Also apply chemical fertilizer every 2 weeks or so. Next, spray fungicides and insecticides every 5-7 days depending on pests and disease pressure in your area.
