From a local in Surfside:

My neighbor who I’ve been friendly with for the past 8 years just saw me in the street and yelled “you f***ing Jews are going to kill us all! You should have shut the shul weeks ago!”
Perhaps he's not your friend.
he just didn't find a reson to hate you.

I saw a video of people piling out after services today at the mosque on Ave H by Coney Island in Brooklyn. Not expecting any media coverage though...

Hi, hoping to find some math expert on DDF.
Yes I know we saw a high number of positive test in Brooklyn slot of them from jewish people.
But, since this virus is very contagious, and especially with kids which don't have any symptoms but can still carry it, the chances that a family with many kids, should catch the virus is multiplied significantly.
So taking into consideration that  the  average American family size is 3.14 and the average (Jewish) Brooklyn family size is 9, the chances that it should be caught is multiplied drastically.
Looking for a math expert to break down the numbers.
I would assume it should be something like this
2 to the 3.14 power =8.81
While 2 to the 9th Power =512
Which means that a typical large family should have 58x more chance to catch it.

You must be a math expert yourself if you came up with the average Jewish family size of 9 in Brooklyn.

You may also want to factor in that Jewish families may mingle more with others than the general public. EG: going to shul, more weddings and simchos, visiting family that leaves nearby...
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Let's not get stuck up with the exact numbers. It might be 7or it might be 10. But you get the idea.

Is it wrong to report that it is spreading in a nursing home?

I don't think it's wrong to report that orthodox communities were hit harder by Corona (if we were), it's a byproduct of our communal lifestyle. It matters how the reporting is done.

It is a 100% fact that there is or will be anti-Semitism related to Coronavirus. It will be so blatant you wont have to guess about the reporting.

I can't speak about New York, but in New Jersey - at least as of a few days ago - the official numbers in Orthodox communities were equal to or less than other areas.

The index cases - the first 8 or so cases, were in counties that did not have major Jewish communities (not in Ocean, or even Passaic Counties). Some were in Bergen's Jewish community, but a small percentage. Most of the other early cases were traced to a Biogen meeting, nothing related to the Jewish community. Even as number started to escalate, and Lakewood started reporting cases, it was consistent with the size of the town, one of NJ's largest. It may rise faster because of community dynamics, but the community is almost entirely avidly social distancing, and the few exceptions are getting a disproportionate amount of press.
