Q. My parents contracted the CoronaVirus. B’chasdei HaShem, their symptoms, though difficult, are not overwhelming and they are quarantined at home.
When, B’ezras HaShem, they recover, and the virus becomes manageable community-wide such that schuls reopen and Jewish community life returns to its wonderful level, is it proper for my father to bentch Gomel and possibly they should make a Seudas Hodaah?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that one who became ill with the coronavirus and Be’H recovered, should recite hagomel when he became seriously ill and needed a respirator or at least the help of an oxygen tank or similar.
Rabbi A. Bartfeld as advised by Horav Shlomo Miller Shlit’a.
