Welcome to the Coronavirus Board
« on: March 04, 2020, 04:57:45 PM »
This is a place to consolidate all existing and future coronavirus threads into one convenient board. This subject has become important and widespread enough here on DDF that having everything together will allow everyone to keep abreast of the situation in an easier manner.

When (if?) this all blows over this board will be dissolved and all threads moved to the applicable original boards.

Well the most important question is will the posts here count towards my post count?

The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Wow! I was confused for a minute. I'm thinking 'was I just dreaming, where did all the corona stuff that I was avidly following go?' and then I found this.

Bittersweet I guess.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

I would post this in the wiki of each thread in the board, but instead, I'll put it here:

Generally, when I appreciate the idea of a DDF post, I push that small button under the post, aptly titled "like", so that the poster can get some recognition and know that people appreciate his/her contribution. I also use the button when I recognize that the DDFer exerted effort into bringing us the information contained in the post, and as a sign of gratitude, I hit the like button.

On this board, it has been increasingly difficult for me to hit the like button. How can someone like a post of this nature?
I have what to say on this topic as my shver a"h came out of there in a body bag this week, but my shver would have shushed me that the hospital didn't do anything and that's what Hashem did and only him.
or
My shver was niftar motzei Shabbas in NYC. He was ‘lucky’ enough to get a Tahara but we had to bury him al tanai in a temporary grave so we can move him to Israel at a later date. Only option to get to Israel was via a private jet but body could not be escorted by anyone due to the quarantine laws.

I have to say this has been one of the most gut wrenching, heart breaking experiences of my life and watch someone who was a true yoreh shamyim to have had a levya with a few people in the rain at the grave site. Not being able to say Kaddish for him, not have a shiva and give proper respect to him has been truly unbearable.

This is not to mention he was isolated in an icu unit for two weeks by himself on a ventilator and died by himself with his children not being able to goodbye.

I am not someone who would typically share this info but people need to know what we are dealing with here. The pain is too much.
or
My shver a"h is on this list. May his soul rest in Gan Eden. I have no doubt that he's there.
I therefore wish to make an open declaration, which I'm sure others will join me in asserting.
On this board, the like button does not connote that the contents of the post is enjoyed. Rather, it has taken on a new meaning:
"I feel for you; I care for you; I hope your pain goes away and only good news should be forthcoming."
I look forward to the day when the like button will retain its literal sense, but until then, know that a push on it means that we are with you, living this nightmare alongside you.
