  1. She died from severe obesity, as well as congestive cardiac failure and pulmonary hypertension NOT from the common cold, known today as coronavirus.

    NOBODY died from this new coronavirus nonsense. They ALL had underlying medical problems, influenza or pneumonia.

    • tell me do you think nobody in the jewish community has things that effect their immune system? do you condemn people to death by not taking minimal precautions? do jews not take precautions? meat and fish. 9 days etc.?

  3. Shame on you both who think we are disposable and who have no compassion for a 19-yr-old young woman who according to the article had already suffered a lot in life. How many children do you have? Any of them have a medical condition? Are you not worried they might catch influenza?
    I prefer being likened to sheep, a good-natured kosher animal, than talking like nazis and suggesting selektia.

      • Get over it. We will all die at one point or other. We all have a limited time on this earth. That’s the way the Aibishter wants it.

        • Not really. He wants to bring Moshiach and slaughter the Angel of Death, last time I checked. Feeling compassion for our neighbors and making an extra effort to preserve their life and health could be a first step.

        • so do you rinse your hands before bentching? avoid consuming meat a fish together? take pre actions during the 9 days etc?
