I thought I read somewhere that the government started a Corona hotel in Tel Aviv as well...
That was for locals.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

If they can follow those precautions nothing but do you really believe they will?
Right now it is a mindset. We have to change how we act and think right now before it is to late.
In (most) groups that I saw, people were behaving in a correct manner.

It doesn't really work because your mentality is so ingrained That's why you have to take such extreme measures including total isolation

If I'll manage I will post later on a video that is going around on WhatsApp of the bochurim that arrived in Israel being told their status. They are basically all being moved to isolation at a hotel in Jerusalem. Each getting their own room. Anyone presenting symptoms will be moved to a medical facility. Health ministry is assuming anyone arriving from Crown Heights is positive.

All videos with the hotel tour...

Then it is a failure. "Most" is not good enough.

The exceptions (hence the "most") don't adhere to rabbinic authorities in any case (anarchists*). The majority who do listen, were also obeying the rules.


(*which may help you understand why some were arrested by NYS Sherrifs/NYPD last night. I'm not providing more details.)

Those few will infect the ones obeying the rules.

Very unlikely.

How do you think this virus is spreading? These same people taking the precautions you are talking about may already be infected and not know it.

FWIU the going assumption in Brooklyn is that you most likely already have it anyway. That's why everyone without exceptions should have absolutely no physical contact/closeness with anyone at risk (over 60 yo, and those with underlying conditions), who should be completely isolating themselves anyhow.

Indeed. I have no reason to assume that the vast majority of the community has not already been infected.
