  1. I think many Jewish communities not just Boro park took this not seriously enough. It was serious, just not serious enough to cancel a wedding two days away, or a Purim party, or a bris etc. now we are reaping what we have sown. The Flatbush community as well Has seen a HUGE spike , so much so that a local doctor told me today don’t bother coming in for testing, if you have fever, it’s probably Coronavirus. He said majority of the dozens of tests he has sent in were positive. BH he said most cases were very mild and we shouldn’t worry. But to stay home and avoid contact with all others. I know many other people who have fever right now.

  2. His intentions are pure but he was way to soft. Say it loud: “Stay in your houses!”, “Osur to daven with a minyan!”, “Osur to hear krias hatorah!”. It is aveira habo’o b’aveira! Pikuach nefesh! This is not just SOFEK pikuach nefesh! how many more of your friends must be in ICU in order to get it? Don’t think about your disrupted life. Think about other people’s ACTUAL LIVES! We will do our part and Hashem should do his!

  3. Has there been a clear, unqualified and strong statement from ALL the gadolim here in here in the U.S. to immediately stop going to shuls, yeshivos,, mikvah, simchas, etc. until further notice.

  4. If Chaim Fischer wants everyone to take it seriously, I think he should start by giving his members the proper Masks and other equipment to protect themselves.
