Ultra-Orthodox community feeling stigmatized over coronavirus allegations

“We have been turned into lepers and criminals.”  
These were the words of David Rubinstein, a resident of the ultra-Orthodox city of Bnei Brak, one of the main epicenters of the coronavirus in Israel and currently on a full lockdown because of the severity of the outbreak there.

    It's the Skittles argument - you have a bowl with 100 Skittles (candies) in them. 99 are fine but one is poisonous. Would you eat from that bowl or throw the whole thing out?
    Let's say 99% of Chareidim are following the rules. 1% are not, and they're being open and blatant about it. And they look just like the 99% who are behaving. So at what point do you just say to the community "Stay over there until you've figured it out"?
