Pandemic is not the biggest trial for humanity, Jews believe

Moscow, April 14, Interfax - Current pandemic isn't the most powerful trial in the human history, president of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia Alexander Boroda believes.

"The whole world is grasped by a dangerous virus, nobody knows how it can influence a human organism: vaccine is not invented, and no one can say for sure how long the pandemic will last, but we also should be honest: the thing we are facing today is not the most terrific trial in the human history," he said on Tuesday addressing the Jews as the Passover period resumes.

Boroda points out that modern medicine is at a good level, modern technologies allows us to continue our work and studies and in spite of limitations people do not break off the communication between each other.

"We all know the way of fighting against spreading of the virus that saves hundreds thousands lives and perhaps will save your life and life of your dearest ones, this way is self-isolation," the Jewish leader said.

Boroda urged not to focus on reasons that caused problems, but to seek their settlement. "If we react in a right way, then after the crisis, we'll be able not only to return to the previous economic positions, but we will be able to gain even better results," the FJCR president said.
