Hashem yerachem. How many more signs and warnings do we need, to realise that we have to take action NOW and prevent another outbreak in our community?

Yes, yes

Hurry, everyone run to your basement! The news said we are in trouble

I’m not the biggest advocate to shut down 770, but if they want people not to attend then it needs to be closed, the washing machine will be spinning as usual, and the shul will be filled packed like sardines, there’s no other way, to suggest not go or that is unsafe has already been proven to be ineffective.

There are already many visitors in CH, and closing 770 would mean they would go to other shuls and possibly infect others.

the problem is more the government then the the virus, the government sees how we are not listening because of the defiant isreali’s and that there is 1000 in one hall/shul they might shut some things down

770 is known as the shul
Most shuls are not that known to the government

I don’t understand what everyone is doing?
It’s simple wear a mask, and stay away from large crowds! Close 770!!! Don’t let people in! why do we need a repeat, haven’t we learned what happens if people don’t do what they should!
Why do we have to be different than the whole world and not follow the simple steps to staying safe. It’s selfish of anyone who isn’t wearing a mask!!

Why close it

Why shut down 770? Anyone who wants to go there should be able to go there. If you’re so afraid then you should stay away from 770 and stay away from people who go there.

Maybe look at real stats of what’s going on in the ‘whole world’ instead of just believing everything the media tells you. You might find a different reality

So you think Dr Rosen is part of the global conspiracy to make corona look worse than it is. Makes sense, he probably just came from a meeting with the heads of CNN, MSNBC, ABC, & CBS to announce that Crown Heights is seeing a resurgence of cases and needs to shut down

if deal, so they tested positive. The cdc came out that hardly anyone died of the virus. It’s was related to previous illness and the elderly. More died from suicide than the disease.. this shtus needs to stop. It’s all political

Exactly!!

People need to wake up. These masks and the whole lockdown is only about control – has nothing to do with our health. Believe me if they cared about our health, hydroxychloroquine wouldn’t be banned and censored.

Only 183,000+ people dead, no big deal right?

183k???? How many of those died of other causes (“with COVID”). Just throwing around numbers that CNN posts and that was cooked by Democrat Governors is just nonsense.

Very easy to call out skeptics as “conspiracy theorists” but with COVID there has been lots of monkey business going on by leftist governments especially by Democrats here in the USA.

Death Rate

September 17, 2020 8:58 pm

It is very easy to compare how many people died in a particular area during a particular time pre-covid and look at the number of deaths in that area post-covid and see that not only have there been many more deaths post-covid but that the approx. 190,000 deaths to date is a big understatement.

Look at your list , mostly the elderly

And why is it ok that elderly people died? Yes, Many of them had other conditions but that doesn’t mean they died of other conditions. They died because of Covid and they could have gone on to live many more years because of the medications that we have to treat other health problems.

Most Americans have pre existing health conditions

According to a new analysis by the Department of Health and Human Services, 50 to 129 million (19 to 50 percent of) non-elderly Americans have some type of pre-existing health condition…. Older Americans between ages 55 and 64 are at particular risk: 48 to 86 percent of people in that age bracket have some type of pre-existing condition.” “Related to previous illness.” A huge portion of Americans suffer from pre existing health conditions. To say that COVID isn’t to be worried about because it is only deadly /dangerous to people with health conditions is so foolish considering so many Americans,… Read more »

Question
September 17, 2020 2:44 pm

why would you send these boys home to infect their families and then the rest of us? Quarantine all of them – they’ll all be exposed and over it and we move on. If you send them home and then back again after tishrei – same thing will happen

Look at Israel where they have shut down multiple times and had a strictly enforced mask mandate and yet they are still getting more cases and are locked down again! Masks don’t work and lockdowns don’t work. Vulnerable ppl should stay home and everyone should go about their lives as normal. Of course there will be more “cases” but who cares. First, show me the numbers and what cycle threshold is being used for the tests, and second I want to see numbers on hospitalizations. Otherwise stop listening to fake news and stop pushing panic and fear.

Totally wrong about israel and masks

israel has one lockdown and strict mask enforcement which worked. There were barely any cases. But then they idiodically opened everything up while inforcing masks. They allowed gyms and indoor eating in restaurants and mass protests of thousands of people. They opened schools without testing students and teachers until they got infections. So dont say masks dont help. Now israel is going to a 2nd lockdown. With lockdown buses stopped running on shabbos and nightclubs and restaurants open on shabbos closed. Thats had a lot to do with reducing the virus. Now they will close again with lockdown and force… Read more »

We need to lockdown again until people stop dying from any disease. It’s just so dangerous and I’m really concerned.

herd immunity in the way to deal with it, the way Sweden is dealing it.
do your research and stop watching fake news.

herd immunity doesnt work with massive influx of new infected people and others with no immunity. Also can be new people bring a new mutated virus strain which we arent immune to
