In fact, they allow young people to be infected with the understanding that the vast majority of them will go through the disease with very mild symptoms, and keep the adults from getting infected from them. Prof. Hezi Levy explained that “this is not our health doctrine, and we do not adopt herd immunity, with the morbidity and accompanying mortality.”
He further expressed disappointment with this independent decision: “I am very hurt by this behavior, and it is a test time for the information and leadership of the opinion leaders in the sector.
The ultra-Orthodox sector has been at the center of violations of the guidelines in recent days, and as expected also suffers from particularly widespread morbidity and high percentages of positive tests. On the streets of Bnei Brak yesterday they tried to explain the pictures of the large gatherings on the eve of Yom Kippur and also what is behind the high numbers of patients compared to the low number of dead and seriously ill in the sector. Later, Lithuanian current leaders published Rabbis Kanevsky and Edelstein Instructions for Sukkot: Pray only in the courtyards, do not host in the sukkah, observe masks.
Most patients in the sector are indeed under the age of 24 and the most prominent group is men aged 17 to 24, i.e. yeshiva students. The fear is that thousands of them who have dispersed to their homes unsupervised, could bring the infection to families. In this context, it is interesting to note what the director general of the Ministry of Health said: “We may allow the opening of the meetings in the outline of the capsules, even though we saw that it did not work so well.”
