מעניו לענין
When you're at one of these 2-10000 person weddings, what parts of the wedding are you at?

There was a wave "because" of RH and another set "because" Yom Kipper and a wave during Sukkos - I know shuls that a group of people had it over sukkos because they got it YK - to set the record straight
As do I. It was a shul that has been masked up since they opened back up, almost the entire shul got it over YK.

Btw, still waiting on your numbers.

And I'm still waiting for proofs of my posts that fed hatred. I guess none of us are getting any (twisted) answers anymore for the time being.

You don't seem to stop gloating about this gloating ...it seems there is something behind that bothers you...

Correct there is - chillul hashem. And I won't stop saying it.

You keep on asking innocent questions and making broad negative assumptions
Well if you really ask innocent then i forgive you ,but it totally doesn't sound this way ,sorry

Unfortunately, to your twisted mind it doesn't. The rest of us with our heads screwed on straight found it to be just that. An innocent question that was not deserving of such a nasty response (but no surprises there...).

There was a wave "because" of RH and another set "because" Yom Kipper and a wave during Sukkos - I know shuls that a group of people had it over sukkos because they got it YK - to set the record straight

Same here. Loads of people hit over R"h and Y"k, not before. And I know 2 people who were unfortunately recently ventilated, may they have a speedy recovery.

Saying its over and done with, even if only in the chassidish community, is obviously patently false. Some people enjoy being an ostrich.

Because it's hard to separate facts from feelings.

In my family, every time someone doesn't feel well, everyone gets tested, it's an enourmes schlep and pain in the butt.

And bh most of us tested negative. It's also the virus makes no sense, many people I know, a husband or wife got it, the others didn't.

But the idea that everyone had it, is patently false, as much as we will ourselves to believe that the worst is over.

It's like surviving the earthquake and ignoring the tzunami.

What level of exposure guaranteed immunity?
What will happen with real exposure and subsequent reinfect?

What about people who thought they had it but didn't ?

Just stuff... And I realize we all want to get back to normal life.

I don't have the answers, but it's good to be cautious in general.

I'm reminded of the sign in the coffee shop bathroom "employees must wash hands..." Then under it "you too, don't be gross"

If everyone washes their hands with soap, covers their coughs and sneezes, ensures they get enough fresh air, exercise, healthy eating, vitamins and nutrients, that would be great.

The issue with living in this era is a twofold problem of chronic obesity and political correctness.. you can't body shame oriole but I mean there's clear scientific co-relation between obesity and covid deaths..

Probably poor ventilation/filtration.

Correct.
Come back after a 2 week timeout if you'd like. Good day sir!

In my shul no one wore a mask since Shuvos, yet there was a wave on YK when we were at a different location with better ventilation

Correct.

Yup, that's what I was referring to (but didn't insert in my already long post 🙂).

My gut feeling is though that not much will change after 2 weeks if he does choose to come back. But its my most fervent wish to be proven totally wrong on this.

Funny how convinced people can be Cuomo hates Jews while laughing at those who accuse them of hating chassidim

The big difference between this and NYC is that in NYC the cops resent DeBlasio and Cuomo and the community keeps good relationships with the cops.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

If the NYC hospital situation was half as bad as Belgium I can assure you the cops would be just as strict as they are in Belgium regardless of who you think they like and dont like
