Are people taking this too far? (AUDIO & PHOTOS)

The question is, are people overreacting, or is it the right thing to do?

  1. The rav says “cover your mouth” when sneezing or coughing. NOT with your hand!! Use a tissue or your sleeve. Otherwise your now germy hand is spreading the germs to whatever you touch.

  2. Yes!! This panic is just causing more and more panic which leads to irrational behavior. Sure, everyone should take necessary precautions – wash your hands etc but not treat this as the apocalypse.

    Pesach is in a few weeks and people have stocked up on pasta, and the like to last 6 months.

  3. are people forgetting that they have water coming out of their kitchen sinks that they can drink . If their water does not taste good buy a water filter for your faucet.

  4. R’ Avigdor Miller said already years ago, Do NOT kiss the Sefer Torah. Kuhl Sh’kain when there is a disease that is insanely catchy.
    The Rav is also right about the handshaking and hugging. I have a woofwoof of a close relative this week and I’m planning to just not shake hands.
    May H-shem, who runs the whole world, heal this virus very soon.
