    • I don’t like to call myself an idiot, I’m more of an optimist, but I’m waiting for the final numbers to show that COVID-19 is as deadly percentage ways as common flu. Unfortunately it’s allot more catchy, due to it’s crazy long incubation period, and allot more severe on its victims. I still hope that it’s less then 0.4% deadly.
      Refua Sheleima to all exposed!

      • So we have over 10k dead now so far, if we lose another 30k people I guess that is acceptable so long as it’s a lower percentage than the flu? MEaning we should not have done anything just like we never do anything (other than offer vaccines) for the flu? Is it possible that those numbers would be higher if we handled this the same way we always handle the flu?
        And we all knew (as in any serious person with even a cursory knowledge of what was going on in China and Italy) weeks ago about the long incubation period… no new revelations other than covid19 may really hurt young people as well.

        • New revelations also have the fatality rate at 1.4% as opposed to the initial 3,4 percent, and that number will come down significantly once more people are tested.

          22k dies from the flu in the U.S. this year. 3,000 die everyday around the world from Malaria.

          Yes this is more contagious than the flu, and precautions are wise, as is quarantine for the vulnerable, but the states that are completely shutting down (so far CA and PA, are doing irreparable economic damage, which also has severe implications for people health.

          • Surely someone should forward your comments to Bibi Netanyahu, clearly he also doesn’t realize he’s doing irreparable economic damage, which also has severe implications for people’s health. What a shoteh he is, I don’t understand why he didn’t consult you first.

  1. About 6-7 weeks ago, I had all the symptoms this man described. After the main symptoms subsided, I was hit with a cough like never before. It took about 4 weeks to get my voice back to full strength. I wonder if I already had the virus.

  2. He should have a refuah shelaima! I just want to bring one point about about New York.
    Israel and New York CITY both have around the same population – close to 9 million. Israel had it for weeks and is taking many necessary precautions and BH only has under 500 cases. NYC just got it and it is spiraling out of control, r”l today it is 3600 cases. Why cant NYC followed Israel’s lead and quarantine? stop it? they should of closed the schools looonnng ago.

  3. Refuah Shelima. Thank you for sharing your story and bringing much needed insight and awareness to people, it should be a zechus for you. May Hashem protect all of Klal Yisroel!

  4. The virus can not stand heat. Studies have shown the moment the virus hits heat if can’t withstand!
    It dehydrates the throat and by some chas Vesholom dehydrates further causing shortness of breath etc.
    People have seen mamesh miracles!! You must keep drinking ALOT OF HOT!! It’s Vital!!
    You should Iy”h feel much better!
    Refuah Shleimah!

  5. write hazet be”h you will have a refuah shelema and I hope all your prayers get answered and the final geula comes already we all need it just turn to hashem
