Re: Hatzalah-Thon - Live Stream Concert & Campaign It was incredible.

Generally I shrug off such concerts, my hearing doesn't appreciate it

But I had this open on my TV streaming YouTube live at least 4 hours total on and off.

It (and some wine) also mobilized me to text over 150 contacts to give.

Re: Dropping Antibody Levels
Exactly. And that's why he lost credibility by a lot of people.

Did anyone listen to the recording how he is screaming against purch minyanim? He had to call his rav Friday 2 minutes before the zman to complain about it. He is ranting about people davening on balconies.

Its sad enough that we had to close the shulls. Something which hasn't happened since ww2 in Europe. Yet some people got a kick out of it and just want to make sure that we shouldn't Daven with Minyen at all. Even when it's in compliance with local health guidelines. One of the examples where the cure is worse than the disease.

When Rav Michel ber weismandel went running around Europe trying to save lives, people said he was crazy.

He died young from heartbreak.

A doctor is working all day every day, he puts his life in danger, he is beyond breaking point.

And some nudnik's come along assuming that "God looks after fools and idiots"

You bash the doctors, you ignore what they say, you get sick and sadly many die and the doctor cries and screams "ad Masai"

He cries for the dead person, he cries for the almanos, he cries for the yesomim.

I know because I talk to these doctors, I talk to their wives who stay up all night as their husband's work 18-20 hour day's, as they pray for their husbands and patient's.

I'm not saying I have the answers, I'm saying that din v'cheshbon is needed.

History will be your judge

Re: "it's just like the flu"
I remember a time on ddf when a @chevron was known only for his highly controversial and mildly inappropriate posts.

It's still the case

Re: Corona virus and your shul
Shuls closed before the government required it. The attitude changed significantly in the 3 days from when schools closed until shuls closed.

They closed 1-2 weeks too late

Re: Corona virus and your shul
He was just saying that this whole not talking in shul campaign makes us lose focus on what shul is really about

I think talking in shul makes everyone lose focus of what shul is about ....

Re: The science of COVID-19
I'm not sure there isn't a counter-argument to the first part, as I really don't know the science, but if the virions travel via droplets or aerosols, isn't it the size of those that matter rather than the size of the virions?

However, the last part where he talks about touching the masks is 100% spot on. I linked somewhere to an Israeli article about possibly exempting students from wearing masks during extreme heatwave, and there's a video interview with a doctor there who says the same thing. Constantly touching a mask, which is what most laypeople would do, especially when uncomfortable, is probably worse than not wearing one at all.

Stupid post.

I'm pretty sure that if somebody was an infected carrier and sneezed, a mask would help

Re: Is there a second wave? I'm confirmed with two internal medicine doctors In Miami specializing in pulmonary care. Both confirmed hospitalizations are up due to coronavirus.

Why does anybody not think that it's not going to explode again in New York?!?

Re: The science of COVID-19 If people wear masks and masks are effective at slowing the spread then that's good .

Better treatment, drugs, less intubation.

So now you have less people spending less time in the hospital. Less use of ventilator etc.

people would be better off not getting the virus given the fact that some people are going to have long-term health issues.

I don't know if I got it? I was in California in February.

And you have to remember that early on we thought people who were wearing masks were silly and that is because the CDC and the WHO did not come out saying this was airborne It was all about not touching your face and all about sanitizing your hands etc.

I actually very early on realized the effect of droplets and viral load.

But tachlis, people can't survive locked up forever.

Yes I do have friends who are spending the time out on the private houses and the private boats

Re: The science of COVID-19
Where's the hamster wheel....

Exactly what I've been saying (except for the 6 months idea, as I think it would be longer and not 100% effective). The restrictions were too harsh and not well thought out, and now they are "backfiring". I understand the initial panic when it seemed like a near death sentence, but now that doctors have learned better treatment modalities, and the restrictions have been in place for so long, a holistic approach needs to be taken in putting restrictions in place. That is not something that will happen with politicians calling the shots.

It was a death sentence when hospitals were overloaded It was a death sentence at the beginning when they didn't have good treatment So yeah the initial lockdown was to stop this.

Nyc got a taste. I'm not panicking here. I wear a mask, avoid others
