This isn't a sci-fi movie
It just feels like one :(

Very preliminary theory and I am not an MD. 

1.  COVID-19 "utilizes ACE-2 as a cellular entry receptor" by binding to it.
Quote taken from https://www.rndsystems.com/resources/articles/ace-2-sars-receptor-identified

2.  "It is mainly expressed in vascular endothelial cells, the renal tubular epithelium, and in Leydig cells in the testes.15,16 PCR analysis revealed that ACE-2 is also expressed in the lung, kidney, and gastrointestinal tract, tissues shown to harbor SARS-CoV."
Quote taken from https://www.rndsystems.com/resources/articles/ace-2-sars-receptor-identified

3.  "The results indicate that ACE2 highly expresses in renal tubular cells, Leydig cells and cells in seminiferous ducts in testis. Therefore, virus might directly bind to such ACE2 positive cells and damage the kidney and testicular tissue of patients."
Quote from https://www.researchgate.net/publication/339243337_ACE2_Expression_in_Kidney_and_Testis_May_Cause_Kidney_and_Testis_Damage_After_2019-nCoV_Infection

4.  "The seminiferous tubules are the site of the germination, maturation, and transportation of the sperm cells within the male testes."
quote from https://www.innerbody.com/anatomy/male-reproductive/seminiferous-tubules

This has, obviously, larger implications if true.

What implications can this potentially have on future fertility or potential birth defects for all of those young yeshiva bachurim who are presumed to have had this?

Yes, because scientists have that level of control /s
This isn't a sci-fi movie

 My friend, this is how bio weapons design works. This is not the early 20th century where they just take the most virulent strains they can find in the wild, concentrate it, and disperse it. Scientists today have the ability to genetically engineer pathogens to target specific organisms and cell structures in the body. They can customize the attributes of a particular pathogen with relative ease. Targeting a particular lining in the lungs is probably well within the capability of a third world country lab, let alone China.

 iím not convinced that this is a pathogen that escaped a Chinese laboratory, but there are enough indications to put it on the table as a theory, and I think That the fact that this virus shows atypical behavior of usual pneumonia progression is one more pointer in that direction.

Far more likely is that the lab was growing and studying coronaviruses found in bats and someone was careless.

Agreed, but nothing is off the table yet.

Unless they find some sort of ďsmoking gunĒ. Chances of that are rather slim...

The CIA orchestrated 9/11, the soviets killed Kennedy, aliens landed in Rosewell NM in 1947 etc etc

If he is honestly  looking to stop social gatherings  can just go to central park, domino park, washington st brooklyn and even time square at times, the cops are there anyways they just have to start writing summonses.
No, he thinks a better idea is 770  or BP.

Deblasio is a clown but what you are saying is unfair. Goyim havent received summonses?

I did not say only Jews are receiving summonses. I am pointing to the fact that on broadway NOW more summonses can be given then in a basement in BP. I think he cares more for a headline in NY Post then to protect people.

Police are driving around in jewish neighborhoods (BP) at a higher frequency then manhattan per say.

The same goes to LKWD vs. TR.

Any chance of someone copying the entire article here?  My usual workaround for these subscription article is not working this time (or maybe doesn't work for the WSJ).
