BH they are alive and well and safely away from NY at the moment.
Chasdei Hashem.


I just meant that emails from local shuls didn't necessarily mean the niftar lived locally

It sounded like the niftarim were by-and-large locals.

Iím trying to listen to both sides. Youíre representing one side here, and youíre not offering proof for your assertions. The ďother sideĒ offered a fair amount of linked/quoted/referenced sources.

You referred to many infectious disease doctors and professionals having a position, back that statement up with a source, a list of sources, or at least a list of some of these professionals, or I will be skeptical.

One side only produced quotes and references from one source. If you are relying solely on sources on this thread, there was also one infectious disease doctor who disputed the facts presented on the other side.

you need to do your own homework, but here are some recents: (There is a ton more out htere if you ar really interested to learn.

The article states that cause of death was coronavirus.
Here are 2 more articles that specifically state cause of death was coronavirus. I also know someone was in touch with him his final week who said he was sick with COVID at home for a week before he was niftar.

According to many Doctors and professionals it is still not clear that this Stay at Home initiative helped much at all.

I guess you didn't have family members, neighbors, friends,l or co-workers DIE from COVID-19 which is why you think this is all a joke.

And yes, I know all the politics about it (Mikvah, etc)

Do you have real facts or only opinion pieces?

Most Chasidishe shuls did close down at the beginning of the outbreak and they remained closed until after Pesach.
Um, are you kidding me?
No. Most were closed. What exactly is your agenda?!!

I personally did. I was very into the lockdown until my grandfather who was in his house since way before purim got corona and died, and when my grandmother's entire nursing home got corona and 50% of the place died even tho they were all on lockdown. Thats when I realized that at this point we can try keeping people away from each other but a Lockdown will be useless. As far as minyanim go, my parents neighborhood in ny has their shuls open the entire time each had over 200 misspalelim with distancing but no restrictions plenty of people over 60 nobody got sick or died. I'm not saying its smart or endorsing in anyway. Simply saying that the the correlation shuls open =uncertain death is simply untrue. ya if you don't realize that in theory lockdowns are nice but they don't actually help and hashem runs the world, them idk if anyone can help u
I call BS.
Nobody got infected? Again, I call BS.
Pretty much, yes

Hashem runs the world is a cop out excuse when itís too annoying to do your hishtadlus. Donít go to work Hashem runs the world. Better yet, donít learn, Hashem runs the world, heíll get the Torah in you somehow.

Itís people who lack emunah in the first place who keep needing to reinforce how Hashem runs the world. Go out and learn a Sefer before giving your sanctimonious mussar about our jobs. Youíre a murderer, also. Even if someone pulls the trigger Hashem runs the world so donít worry.

I don't know if they'll stay around or not. But if they do, it would be from a distance which is legal and safe.

They are both great men. Great Talmidei Chochomim, very humble and soft spoken. I don't think disparaging them will serve you well.

I guess you didn't have family members, neighbors, friends,l or co-workers DIE from COVID-19 which is why you think this is all a joke.

I did have very close family members and friends who died, some who barely made it, and I also had Corona myself. I also spent weeks helping to save the lives of family members who barely made it. I do not think it's a joke at all. I do think some of the extra precautions are useless and counterproductive though.

I also believe most people who will get it, already got it. In my family and many others, some got it and some did not. We did not quarantine within the house. We shared bathrooms, ate meals together, and lived in the house normally. Still, some people did not get it, and the doctors they are seeing this with many families.

There is no reason to create panic and fear. Let people out in a safe and legal manner and we'll all be better off. Start by davening with a minyan.

I don't know if he signed or not, but I doubt he's missed a minyan yet.
