Is Covid a Public Emergency?

In my previous post, readers were cautioned to beware pseudo-emergencies. I was subsequently asked: what would it take for a disease to qualify as an actual emergency by Judaic standards? Read on...

Does covid qualify as a "national emergency?"

According to Judaism, the answer is categorically NO.

Let's assume their claim of 265,000 covid deaths in the US to date is accurate. (It isn't -- it's nowhere near accurate by their own admission, but that's a separate point)

In Judaic law, a plague is so defined only if .3% of the entire population died from the disease in three consecutive days, at a rate of .1% per day. In such a case, the disease is recognized as a public emergency. [1]

Since the US population is approximately 331 million, covid would need to cause 331,000 deaths daily, with a total of 993,000 within three consecutive days.

265,000 alleged covid deaths in nine months is not a plague, and is not recognized a cause for panic. 

Needless to say, covid is not a national emergency, not by any stretch of the imagination.

What about the allegedly hardest-hit state, NY?

Let's consider the numbers. With a population of 19.5 million, a plague would require 19,500 deaths daily in NY, with a total of 58,500 within three consecutive days.

In reality, NY State claims 34,000 covid deaths in nine months. Covid is not a public emergency in NY by Judaic standards.

What about the State of Israel?

With a population of 8.884 million, emergency "plague" status would require 8,884 daily deaths, and 26,652 within three days. In reality, Israel's total alleged covid death toll is a mere tenth of that after nine whole months. Covid isn't an emergency for Israel either.

Can covid be called a "worldwide emergency?" Let's examine that claim:

Out of a world population of 7.6 billion, the earth would need to see 7.6 million covid deaths daily, and 22.8 million deaths in three days. According to Google, only 1.45 million covid deaths have been reported worldwide in total -- after nearly an entire year.

Clearly, Judaism rejects the government's claim that "covid fatalities" justify its emergency measures to infringe on our constitutional rights.

No wonder covid policy has declared religion non-essential. 

The only way to perpetuate their lie is by suppressing religion and Judaism in particular.

No wonder DeBlasio, Cuomo, and Netanyahu went after synagogues and Jewish schools with a vengeance.

Judaism exposes their falsehoods. To sustain their false narrative and illegitimate policies, they had no choice but to ban the only source of objective truth.

G-d and religion had to be declared "non-essential" and therefore a risk to public health.

In true Marxist style, Torah study had to be identified as an enemy of covid, and therefore an enemy of the state... since that's all this so-called pandemic is really about: a depraved attempt to legitimize tyranny and police state.

Remember how the Soviets banned public religion as "counter-revolutionary?" That's what's happening now too.

Don't fall for it.

Exercise your G-d-given freedoms and say no to covid tyranny. Assert the truth.

Go to shul and pray with community.

Gather the children and teach them Torah in public, just like Mordechai and Esther did in the face of Haman's evil decree.

The truth will sprout forth from the earth.[2]

Only the emergence of truth can end the pseudo-emergency that is covid.
