I am very concerned that we will be hearing of many rabbonim and the like being infected since they are often in contact with many random people. Considering that many of them are older this is a serious issue.

+1

I  know for a fact of over a dozen Rabbonim/Rebbeim who are seriously ill with corona. Some public info, some not. Some family members.

I saw reports that this was COVID-19 related. Son-in-law says it was not.
That is correct.

Remember that it took a long time for major shuls and yeshivos throughout brooklyn, Monsey and Lakewood to close? Public schools were closed the week of the 15th; many yeshivos had already started shutting down after New Rochelle. Unfortunately, the community didn't take it seriously in time and put elderly rabbanim at risk.

(Although I don't know how many of the people on your list were part of those communities, it's still part of the problem)

Does anyone know Romi Cohn's full Hebrew name? I was extremely moved by his book (The Youngest Partisan), and since he didn't leave any children, I would like to dedicate something l'zecher nishmaso. I know for davening his name was Avrohom ben Malka, but does anyone know his father's full Hebrew name? I haven't seen it written anywhere.

I don't know it, but the Sefardim use the mother's name for this as well.

Good to know, but I'm not Sefardi, nor was he (born in Pressburg). If anyone knows his father's full Hebrew name, I'd appreciate it. If not, I'll have to suffice with his mother's.

Per Mishpacha, his father's name seems to be Yom Tov.

Avraham “Romi” Cohn was nine years old when the Germans invaded his native Pressburg Czechoslovakia in 1938. Because his father Yom Tov (Leopold) Cohn was a wealthy businessman involved in international commerce the family was granted an “economic exemption” during the mass deportations of Slovakian Jews in 1942...

Davened in my shul. Sat not 10 feet from me. Was still at home this morning. Insane.
