G-d says that preservation of life takes precedence over all other considerations whatever they maybe.
Preservation of life means not saying, “that the virus might disappear through a miracle.”
Preservation of life means not saying,” This is like a flu.”
Preservation of life means not saying, “they recommend it [wearing a mask] I just don’t want to wear one myself.”
Preservation of life means not saying,” I don’t take responsibility at all,” and so many more such statements.
You may say that quitting the Iran deal is also considered preservation of life.
But look at the difference.
The Iran deal could cause death. That’s about what may happen in the future.
Covid has caused death yesterday, is causing death today and will G-d forbid cause death tomorrow if there’s no change of attitude.
There’s no question, no doubt in anyone’s mind, the concern for what is happening at this present moment supersedes any worry of what may happen in the future.
So isn’t voting for someone who says all of the above forsaking G-d?
So isn’t voting for someone who says all of the above voting against G-d?
You may not want to vote for the other candidate. Ok
So then G-d says, “don’t vote!”
