Defying virus rules, large Hassidic community continues with weddings

As city and state officials warned on Tuesday about the danger of large gatherings amid the coronavirus outbreak, hundreds of revelers celebrated at a Hasidic wedding in Brooklyn and huddled together in the street after the Fire Department broke up the celebration.

“Everything was exactly how it would have been if there hadn’t been any kind of a pandemic,” said a musician who played at the event, which he said drew more than 200 people. He declined to be named for fear of losing future jobs. “I was assuming it would be canceled,” he said.

The coronavirus pandemic has upended life in New York and across the country, leading to school closures, restrictions on bars and restaurants and a ban on public gatherings of more than 50 people.

TVNL Comment:  This is how the coronavirus spreads.
