“As could be expected, most of the ill bochurim got tested for COVID when they became ill but they tested negative.”

Not only Yeshiva boys.

Lots of people complaining even here in Crown Heights. Men and women. I hope it’s temporary and it will go away soon.

hhmmmm

Oh we all know what’s happening here. First it’s the athletes and then it’s the seminaries, now Big Pharma is coming for our tayere bochurim too. When will we wake up!?

“As could be expected, most of the ill bochurim got tested for COVID when they became ill but they tested negative.”

I know you have your obsession with “owning” your political opponents, but you might at least try to have it somehow comport with the facts…

No COVID, so the vaccine wouldn’t make a difference. Capisce?

Must have been, to be allowed into yeshiva

Were they vaccinated?!?

Probably

These are the places where the most people are vaccinated, lets use our brains and do not follow like sheep!!!

ITS CALLED OMICRON NOT FLU

And it’s called

a variant that’s not at all dangerous. There is not one single death from it.

Turn off your caps lock key, open up your mind, and learn some actual facts instead of fearmongering.

Lie

Complete lie. Many people have been hospitalized and died due to Omicron. Take your head out of the sand.

Omicron does not have these symptoms

December 16, 2021 7:46 pm

But don’t take my word for it. Look it up and you will see for yourself.

Now I am wondering whether the bochurim in the U.S. with this illness are vaxxed, like the ones in EY (or like probably most of the ones in EY).

If it was omicron then they would have tested positive for covid

Avian influenza outbreak

It’s the bird flu

Not every test works for Omicron...
December 16, 2021 5:13 pm

Cause of mutation, one of the covid tests doesn’t register Omicron as covid…

Cause of mutation in Omicron, some ...
December 16, 2021 5:20 pm

Some covid tests don’t pick up Omicron/false negatives (…from someone who watches too much medical youtube videos)

Refuah Shelaimah!!
December 16, 2021 5:37 pm

May each of them get well quickly!

Influenza?
December 16, 2021 5:49 pm

The article mentions negative COVID tests but what about influenza testing? Perhaps this is the flu–which can be treated with antiviral medication.

No mystery at all
December 16, 2021 6:05 pm

If they were deceived into getting the Covid shot, then it ain’t no mystery at all. The rabbis who said to get it, didn’t do thorough research and listen to all sides, and ignored those who warned them have blood on their hands!

Of all the comments
December 16, 2021 6:24 pm

Not one addressed the issue of poor nutrition. Until we fix that, we will always be at risk for the “next” thing

CDC warns against Johnson and Johnson vaccine

Caused by vaccination or after recovery
December 16, 2021 8:06 pm

There is a syndrome that occurs after vaccination or recovery from covid that causes autoimmune reaction. Can also be vaccination screwed up immune system so they got flu. A 6 year old died from this and they said it was flu. It came a month after recovery from covid

Vaccine
December 16, 2021 8:17 pm

The vaxx destroys the immune system as many top doctors have been warning about. So maybe these boys were vaccinated and can’t fight this off 🙁

In the mesivta were out of school in the last 2 weeks also with some sort of flu- not Covid.

This is a calamity

Refua Shleima to all those that are sick. Just hoping it’s not the mysterious unknown after effects of the experiment. Hashem Yirachem

Stop Arguing and say a kapitel Tehillim
December 27, 2021 1:24 am

The great Rashi was not shy to say aini yodaiah. No one really knows what’s going. One thing for sure ,things are not what they should be .anyd there are as many opinions regarding covid,vaccines ,etc, as there are recipes for “perfect Challa” Let each person do what their rofeh yedid advises them and most of all turn to the Rofeh Cholim of us all,and implore him to finally bring the Geulah Shlaimah.In times like these Tehillim is the most PRACTICAL thing to do . p.s. Our children are watching us to see how respectful we are towards those who… Read more »
