The poster above was sent to us this evening. This is a request in Yiddish by Congregation Yetev Lev of Satmar and Yeshiva Torah v Yireh of Satmar for only healthy people to come and get tested.
This is a tacit acknowledgement by the Satmar leadership that they are getting sick. This is further intended to mislead the NYS Government regarding the illness within that community.
Finally, for this to work there must be medical personnel and healthcare officials complicit in this drive to mislead the public.
UPDATE: We have been told that thousands of RoboCalls are also being made to the community to come and get tested.
“Emergency Drive for Healthy Individuals Only. We must bring down our numbers to save our community, schools, and synagogues.
Please help the community stay open. Only 100% individuals are asked to come tonight to emergency testing drive to bring down our numbers.”
The following are the locations for testing:
Beis Hamidrish Hagadol
Beis Hamidrish Beis Menachem Tzvi
Beis Hamidrish Baruch Moshe
Beis Hamidrish of Our Community
