He says doctors in the area hospitals are prioritizing non frum patients for respirators RL because they say the frum people are bringing it upon themselves by gathering together.
ouch!

Is there anything from official (NYS) sources on mikvahs? Someone (sincerely) told me that he saw that the NYSDOH said Mikvahs can't transfer the virus.

(Maybe I should post this in the FakeNews thread)
The Mikva itself (if maintained properly). Everything else surrounding is the problem. Items, people etc.

There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools and hot tubs. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g., with chlorine and bromine) of pools and hot tubs should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.

This is also the sad outcome of hagiographic biographies of the personages of the previous generations where stories are told of mesirus nefesh for [fill in the blank] when in fact those stories never happened or are embellished beyond any truth. The mesirus nefesh in the concentration camps was by individuals not hundreds or thousands.
Among the chilul hashem that is going on on this thread, the above one is on a total different level of low. Very sad to see how some emerge with their true colors in this crisis.

How are people so ignorant?
Another story I just heard from a client, he ordered on Friday some platters for his son's bar mitzvah so I asked him today how it went... He told me that there were 63 ppl in the shul and the Rov didn't wanted more than 50 because that's the limit from the government (WHAT???) so the Rov asked a few ppl to go out. I told him that no gathering is allowed according to the law and he couldn't believe me.
One of the lessons, Rabonim Rabonim but make sure they have the story straight first.

There are 2 main differences between the FAKE 'Mesirus Nefesh' of today's Minyonim and the mesirus nefesh in Russia and the Holocaust (besides the fact that it's against the Rabbonim and so against the torah).
1. Back then it was שעת השמד where the Gemara says אפי' ערקתא דמסאנא (Google it).
2. They weren't putting other ppl in danger without their knowledge (today they spread the virus beyond the Minyan)

Guys, stay home and stay safe. Stop the minyanim, mikvas, and gatherings. My BIL just named his baby over zoom, was it ideal? no. Was it necessary at this time? yes.

Many peoples Pesach plans are upended as a result of this virus, but if we don't adhere to the recommendations who knows how long we will have too live like this.

Unless you an essential employee (healthcare/first responder) or you need to leave for essentials like food and medicine don't leave your house. Is it comfortable? No. And if leaving for essentials it should only be one designated person. Limit the spread and flatten the curve. Hospitals are overloaded, there are literally pop up morgues in NYC, why would anyone want to add to the death toll?

Rant over.

Yes Rav Moshe learned shas 400 times you dolt! The Kotzker (CMIIW) said It best...If you believe all the stories about the Baal Shem happened youre a fool...so much more so for all the drivel that is written in these "biographies". You dont like to hear the truth that your hero wasnt perfect...too bad.

Thats not chilul Hashem. Chilul Hashem is seeing mothers taking walks with their 6 kids and carriages throughout Boro Park when yidden are dying because this disease keeps being spread. (Yes I have changed my tune on kids) Seeing FAKERS ROTZCHIM MENUVALIM hiding behind false piety to bow at the alter of todays Baal.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

none of the above.

It's incredible that the spread of Coronavirus just so happens to be caused by all the things I personally disapproved of before the virus existed.
