  1. This is to show how many lives the vaccine “saved”. The variants are actually caused by the vaccine.
    Before the vaccine came out they had half the number of deaths, and the government can still force me to go get this useless vaccine?

  2. Can the Rabbi’s of these cities bring an Eglah Arufah and say Yadeinu Lo Shafchu Es Hadam Hazeh??

    In New Zealand there are 27 dead to date thanks to strict adherence to masks and social distance guidelines.

    It seems to be simple math that thousands of jewish lives could have been saved during corona had the Rabbi’s adopted minhag “New Zealand” as one would have thought the Torah commands us to.

    Were all the Tefillos Betzibur and in person learning during this time worth all the dead?? Acc. to which Torah??

  3. This is ridiculous. I live in Gilo and not one Hareidi person I know died from Carona. Gilo is a neighborhood with 20K Jews the majority Hilonim and Mizrachi with a rising Hareidi population. Sounds to me that they just saw Gilo and said oh must be Hareidi that died.

    Secondly, Faigy your full of horse manure.

  4. Does any body know why Monoclonal Antibody IV Therapy is not administered in Israel?? In the US it is being used very effectively.

    H’aaretz had an expose a few weeks ago but the story disappeared!
