(What about the 3000 Israelis killed by actual terrorists or the 20,093 Israeli soldiers killed since 1948? That's a lot of Jews. How about we do something about that!)
But like everything else with covid, nothing is what it seems.
4 Causes of Death Attributed to C0vid (Or, Why the C0vid Death Rates Can't Possibly be Accurate)
- Hospital error (like in the beginning when staff didn't realize the initial type of ventilator use was actually killing people rather than saving them)
- Hospital neglect (like being terribly lonely & depressed and/or medical needs ignored, like proper care of diabetes, etc.)
- Dying of something else altogether, but staff registering it as a c0vid death (like registering a death from vehicular crash or another disease as a covid death)
- Outright murder (like staff turning off a life-support machine without any permission—not that euthanasia is permitted, but just saying—because they knew they could just label it as a death from covid & get away with it.
I'm not going to go into the last one because I've no proof, so I cannot discuss it intelligently, and because I lack proof, you've every right to disbelieve it.
But just to briefly explain why I include it: A rabbi confided in my husband that a staff member was told by person in charge of the ward to turn off the life-support machine of an elderly patient diagnosed with covid-19, and then write down the official cause of death as covid-19.
The staff member did so 4 times (that's 4 people) before a guilty conscience caused this person to turn to a rabbi, who then told this person that one must quit one's job rather than turn off life-support.
So, minus 4 for murder, the Israeli covid death count is actually 6996.
In Thailand, some nurses came out and said they were told to kill patients, but I can't remember where that article is.
We can't know how much this has happened.
There's no proof it happened at all.
So that's all I'm saying about it.
(Side note: I tried to see if something could be done, but in the face of a variety of obstacles, no.)
Note: The links below represent a sample to support claims, but certainly, more examples exist than what appears below.
Nor is infection by the many ferocious germs already in hospitals.
In fact, the father of one of my son's friends went to the hospital for a minor reason & contracted a severe bacteria that killed him within a few days. I heard that directly from his widow at the shiva.
Yes, the man had medical issues that made him vulnerable. But his widow couldn't shake the realization that if he'd remained home, he'd probably still be alive.
Is that the hospital's fault?
Hard to say.
Despite the strict hygienic policies required among hospital staff, studies show that many do not follow the required regimen, washing their hands less often than they should among other issues:
So the inadvertent lack of hygiene? That's one kind of hospital error.
Here's a general gist of hospital errors:
It is well-known now that at the beginning of the covid spread, hospitals were not using the ventilators properly for the specific issues of the covid patients. This was not on purpose, yet it happened & many people died. How many? Hundreds? Thousands worldwide? Is it possible to know?
Outright easily preventable neglect bordering on criminal (like starvation):
Loneliness, boredom & isolation causing depression & lethargy, which negatively affects one's physical health:
Covid patients suffering cold & discomfort, intensifying the ill health of the patients.

Hospital Falsification of Cause of Death
On her blog, Rivka Levy mentioned a family she knew who told her this happened to them, that their relative died of cancer, but the hospital wanted to register it as covid-19.
Reports spread regarding victims of vehicular accidents labeled as covid deaths if they tested positive for covid, even though covid had nothing to do with their death:
And here is this doctor revealing that doctors were told outright to carry out this scheme:
Shocking: doctors told to fill out COVID death certificates without tests
Why Is This Happening?
Nothing is what it seems.
Has there ever been a time when hospital staff worldwide neglected patients with the SAME specific disease to this point, made such copious errors regarding the same disease, and were pressured to falsely report deaths as resulting from this same disease?
And ALL regarding the SAME disease?
(Yes, I realize sufferers of leprosy & Ebola may have been neglected out of fear, but was anyone telling doctors to intentionally write the cause of death as leprosy or Ebola when the person actually died of cancer or a motorcycle crash?)
This post is not meant to scare.
(In fact, maybe you can feel relieved the c0vid death rate is not as high as it seems.)
Since time immemorial, the medical profession has been plagued with the above issues & medical treatment always depends on siyata d'Shmaya.
Personally, I've had both extremely positive experiences with hospital staff & negative experiences.
I've had doctors dismiss correct treatment & prescribe ineffective treatment or difficult treatment that did not treat the problem at its source, when the core solution was something else entirely (and MUCH easier to carry out).
But I've also had doctors figure out the right diagnosis & treatment with great accuracy.
I've encountered caring, competent, patient hospital staff & cold-hearted or nasty hospital staff who should never work with people, let alone become doctors & nurses responsible for the care of other human beings.
The covid phenomenon simply highlights these issues, putting these issues on steroids.
Once again, this is part of the new era of Keter d'reisha d'lo ityada (the apex of stuff "not being able to be known") as explained by Rav Itamar Schwartz as presented on the Bilvavi website.
The whole covid phenomenon represents this new era, which is why everything connected with covid is like a snake slithering & twisting in & out of our grips.
This is why anytime anyone thinks they've figured something out about covid, the rug gets whisked out from under their feet.
We see this with all the contradictory reports regarding masks, social distancing, vaccines, treatment, statistics—everything.
Hashem MEANS it to be like that.
When things are not predictable & we lose the illusion of control, we realize we lack any other choice but to turn to Hashem.
(Ideally, anyway. Not everyone does or will do this.)
May we please receive the light of Geula b'rachamim.
