      Good point.

      I mean, why bring Hashem into this if we don’t really really need to.
      We can fend for ourselves, and turn to Hashem only for the “hard” things.

  1. It’s incredible how uninformed some people can be. Look at the data! 4% of those infected are dying. This is not the common flu.

  2. Hello fellow Yidden.
    The Davening and concern is not that the ppl who have it shouldn’t Chas Vishalom die. We are Davening for the 1000’s that are affected by it, if it’s to do with business, not able to go to Shul, not able to go to Simchos (or ppl who are making Simchos who have it) etc… it’s spreading much faster then a regular flu.
    Hashem should save Klal Yisrael from any more Tzaros!

  3. I daven that Hashem help up all wake up to face reality and openly see Hashems wake up call for serious teshuva and achdus together as a loving nation on all levels from drum to Frei to reform etc…

    Nothing just happens by coincidence. Everything has a reason and direct message from Hashem

    May we all do serious teshuva ASAP together as a loving nation

  4. This is a gr8 idea. R’ Gamliel said this is a Mageifa and we need to daven. I would also daven, while we’re at it, for the many cases of Matonad L’Evyonim I’m hearing about as Purim approaches. It’s mamesh heartbreaking. On the one hand we have many among us doing very well but the contrast between the many families struggling with basic expenses is startling. And we need to daven for them. Plain and simple.

  5. We dont have correct stats on who really has it, as testing is only being allowed for people with symproms or a connection to someone who has it. So its impossible to know the percentage. Its much lower than what itll seem.
