The Board of Deputies, an umbrella body for the UK Jewish community, stated on Tuesday that there has been an uptick in deaths amongst British Jews due to COVID-19 over the last week, with seven Jewish funerals carried out where the deceased contracted the coronavirus.
This is the highest recorded weekly figure recorded by the Board of Deputies since the beginning of June.
In total, 520 British Jews have died of COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic
“The last two weeks have sadly seen an increase in those dying from Covid-19 in our community,” said President of the Board of Deputies Marie van der Zyl.
“We have already been hit hard by this awful disease and we are desperate to keep everyone as safe as possible.”
Van der Zyl noted that the upcoming Simchat Torah holiday this weekend could lead to increased infections.
“I implore everyone to follow the Government regulations on hygiene and social distancing so that we can all keep as safe as possible,” she said.
These figures come as districts with high Jewish populations have risen to the top of infection rates in those areas.
In the London borough of Barnet, the ward with the highest 7-day infection rate from Sept, 20 to 26 was Golders Green with 71 COVID-19 infections per 100,000, two and a half times the borough-wide rate of 28 infections per 100,000.
Barnet has the largest Jewish population of any borough in London, and Golders Green has the highest Jewish population in that borough and indeed is the most populous Jewish neighborhood in the country, as well as having a large ultra-Orthodox community.
The second highest infection rate in Barnet was the Edgware ward which has the fourth largest Jewish community in the the country and also has a sizeable ultra-Orthodox community.
And in Stamford Hill, a ward in the London borough of Hackney famous for its large ultra-Orthodox, hassidic communities such as Satmar and Belz, the infection rates are even higher.
According to data from the Hackney council, COVID-19 infection rates spiked dramatically last week, Sept. 26 - Oct. 2 in the three wards in the borough with large ultra-Orthodox Jewish communities.
The weekly rate of infections in Springfield with the UK’s eight largest Jewish community was a massive 309 per 100,000, along with 153 per 100,000 for Cazenove, and 141 per 100,000 for Stamford Hill West.
The rate in Springfield only the week before, Sept. 19 -25, was 103 per 100,000, still extremely high but three times lower than last week.
Dr Sandra Husbands, Director of Public Health for Hackney and the City, stated on October 2 that the Hackney's borough-wide infection rate is 40 cases per 100,000 people.
Even at the beginning of September, Hackney Mayor Philip Glanville noted that the majority of cases were coming from the Stamford Hill area, saying that the spike then could be due to “overseas visitors from countries now on the quarantine list. Those countries include the USA, Israel, and Belgium.”
Glanville said at the time that he was aware of the upcoming Jewish holiday season “that may see hundreds of families visiting each other” but urged Stamford Hill residents “to avoid close contact with other households.”
In Higher Boughton and Broughton Park, local districts within the City of Salford, a metropolitan borough of Greater Manchester with large ultra-Orthodox communities, COVID-19 infection rates have also spiked.
In Broughton Park, the rate of infection was a huge 424 per 100,000 between Sept 25 and Oct. 1, and 273 per 100,000 in Higher Broughton.
On September 27, the Manchester Evening News noted that Higher Broughton “has had the most coronavirus cases in Salford so far with 225 in total, and 28 cases alone in the week beginning Sept. 14.
On August 25, the Manchester Evening News reported that “Higher Broughton has consistently had the highest number of Covid-19 cases in Salford,” and that at the beginning of August “Higher Broughton had the highest confirmed Covid-19 cases in Greater Manchester outside Oldham.”
Local councillor Ari Leitner who is from the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community told the paper that getting messaging to the community about the disease had been hard since the majority of its members do not have TV, smartphones, or internet at home.
Although Higher Broughton and Broughton Park do have high rates of COVID-19 infection, many nearby districts in north-west England are also experiencing severe infection rates, although most not as high as Broughton Park.

Dr. Zelenko said he saw the symptom of shortness of breath resolved within four to six hours after treatment. Do you know that the ancient Egypt were civilized by architects from the (500,000 - 4000 BC) Nsukka Civiliation? Now, Dr. Zelenko provides updates on the treatment after he successfully treated 699 COVID-19 patients in New York. In an exclusive interview with former New York Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, Dr. Vladmir Zelenko shares the results of his latest study, which showed that out of his 699 patients treated, zero patients died, zero patients intubated, and four ho

Copied from the Book; " Reality as Myth " by Onyeji Nnaji The beauty of the discovering of the Radar Rivers and their channels is that it disproves the western hegemonic claim of the Euphrates valley being the position of the birth of the great river, all the points that opposed their claims notwithstanding. Even God himself was very perfect in His creation by placing them in their positions, hierarchically, according to their birth. The first river that flowed located the Havilah land where there are good quality gold, bdellium and fine onyx stones. Pison was the oldest of the rivers and it flowed through the land of the southern Africa. The second river flowed northward to Ethiopia. It was when Africa had been overtaken by virtue of her proximity to the Great Water that other parts of the world began to encounter the remaining river; remarkable with Hiddekel.

Taylor Swift says she is focused on the 2020 election but ‘I do feel that the celebrity involvement with Hillary’s campaign was used against her’. Photograph: Dimitrios Kambouris/VMN19/Getty Images for MTV After years of keeping herself at a largely indifferent remove, Taylor Swift has elaborated on her political ideology in a new interview with Rolling Stone. Harkening back to the perceived better times of the Obama years, Swift said, among other things, that she regrets not getting more involved in the 2016 election, and the way her allegiances or lack thereof have been manipulated by bad actors. For years her reluctance to stake out a claim one way or the other made her something of a useful political totem, including, notably, when neo-Nazis and alt-right trolls adopted her as an Aryan ideal. “Firstly, Taylor Swift is a pure Aryan goddess, like something out of classical Greek poetry. Athena reborn,” Andre Anglin of the white supremacist blog the Daily Stormer wrot
INTRODUCTION In the history of syntax, prepositions alongside other parts of speech are considered as one of the esteemed contributions of the sophists (the itinerant teachers) to the development of the human language. Etymologically, the term “preposition” belonged to the group of word class Aristotle, the founder, referred to as “syndesmoi”. Others in this group are conjunction , article and pronoun . They were thus grouped by Aristotle because they were found to be performing related functions that are summed up in binding terms and exposing the gaps amidst sentences when they are not included. As a plural term, “syndesmoi” is a collective noun that stands for the group while, conjunction , the part of speech that binds together the discourse and finds gaps in its interpretation was called “syndesmos” (see Robins, 1968). Indicating the function of prepositions, Aristotle called it “Prothesis” (a part of speech placed before other words in a composition
There are four generations…, and the fourth generation, which is the most exalted, is kingless and perfect. These people will enter the holy place of their Father and they will reside in rest … They are kings. They are the immortal within the mortal ( The Nag Hammadi, 219 ) O ne of the African homes that colonialism has completely deformed beyond certain level of recognition is Nsukka. Colonialism apart, the most affecting factor to the survival of the meaning which the rich cultural enclave, Nsukka, carries will best be blamed on postcolonial political structure. The biggest harm all these have against Nsukka as a people is that they rubbed her of the meaning of her name; their place of origin; how their fathers managed to come into their present abodes and who their ancestors were. A profound understanding of the excerpt above will open the door towards deciphering the meaning and origin of the people called Nsukka. Also read Nsukka Civilization: The Peoplin
STRICTLY FOR COUPLES … You will know that the man is the head while you are his neck. As such, you direct his focus and make him fixative Our series include the following : * Show him what he looks out for from other women * Teach him like he knows nothing * Learn to play naked games with your husband * Learn to package yourself * Learn to work on your husband M y neighbour had v owed never to let any girl survive as a salesgirl in my shop. This thing has happened for over three times. Each time we brought a new salesgirl, the girl would stay for two or three months; and suddenly she would end her contract with us. In all these, my husband did not know. So, being that the girls usually stole money and other items, the reason for their departure became genuine, thus: they ran away to avoid being punished for their actions. But behind this, the underlying truth is that the girls had been embarrassed by my neighbour who would warn them to leave her loosed husband. Re
Marine lieutenant colonel initially jailed for posting videos critical of the U.S. military’s leadership regarding the withdrawal from Afghanistan will go to trial on Oct. 14-15 at Camp Lejeune near Jacksonville, North Carolina, the Marine Corps announced on Friday. The special court martial hearing for Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller regards the six counts he was charged with on Wednesday, a day after he was released following more than a week of pre-trial confinement. Scheller, an Afghanistan veteran, is accused of: disrespect toward superior commissioned officers; willfully disobeying a superior commissioned officer; dereliction in the performance of duties; failure to obey order or regulation; and conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman. The first count — contempt toward officials — was dropped. Scheller was released from pretrial confinement on Tuesday after spending more than a week in the brig. The release followed intense public criticism and rebukes from several members of C
Copied from the book, Reality as Myths by Onyeji Nnaji T he world of the Bantu travellers shows the walls of the migration that recorded the highest population among the African settlement. Originating from the largest population among the four races that settled in the east before time, all Bantu travellers were pygmies; for that was the nature of the Umudiala, the generation that gave birth to them. The Wikipedia map for Bantu migrations shown below will be of help towards digesting our descriptions of the Bantu people. Bantu migration was rated the third earliest migration of the Negro race from the east. In this regard, all their movement had involved great population of people compared to the number of people involved in the two earlier populations that gave birth to Ethiopia, Nubia and Egypt: the Walker Traveller, and the Race of Anu. Bantu population as we have identified in the third chapter above outweighs the rest of the population of the ancient fathers
