Re: Put up or shut up time
The back and forth on this forum between the "it's over, COVID is done" vs. "humanity is certain to die out due to COVID-19" is nauseating (especially when in actuality, that's likely neither sides real opinion).
So....let's make this real. Right now there are 100K deaths in the US.
For all the people who are on side 1, pledge to give $1K to coronavirus victims campaigns if the final total of deaths is greater than 350K.
For all those on side 2,  pledge to give $1K to coronavirus victims campaigns if the final total of deaths is less than 200K.
Itís an interesting idea. The main problem is I havenít seen anyone here saying that humanity is certain to die out (though there have been posters who said outright COVID is done). Are you saying both of the opinions you referred to have been mentioned on these forums? Perhaps I just havenít seen them.

AFAIK there is an extreme fringe that says ďitís overĒ, and many shades of gray following that with those most extreme on the other side believing ďThere is an extreme statistical likelihood it will get worse without significant interventionĒ.

Obviously, many more factors will be in play in for both sides, considering a cure, vaccine, more data, or government restrictions or lack thereof can change the picture completely.

Re: Do you know someone who has had Coronavirus after Pesach?
High risk individuals are generally being more cautious along with the fact that we continue to see under 20 new positive tests daily. The percent of positives in the general population that are hospitalized is minuscule so one would not expect to see significant hospitalizations unless new numbers increase dramatically.
Hospitalization rates in symptomatic patients of all ages are relatively high, if there is a steady flow to doctors of new cases (that would mean symptomatic) we should be seeing some hospitalizations.
Viruses often mutate. It could be that it is growing weaker with the passage of time.
I want to believe this is the case.

Re: Corona virus and your shul
One thing a Rov, similar to a parent, needs to think through is what will potential end results be of taking the full hard line stance even if it is correct.
Correct. Iím not saying that a Rav shouldnít be able to decide what to do once the doctors provide the necessary information- in fact, I think they definitely should.

I do want to point out that doctors are also trained to keep in mind potential adverse ramifications. Thatís why they DONíT always tell us to hunker down on the chance we get into a car accident or contract the flu. They may be apt to be more cautious but they are intelligent and reasonable people who factor other things in as well.

It irks me a little when people suggest that doctors would have us sit at home all day just to prevent the slightest chance of getting sick. Completely false, and that is why we trust doctors to make many decisions for us. They are also weighing pros and cons, but they understand the cons more than most. Maybe thatís why theyíre seen as more cautious..
