In a special prayer service held at the Western Wall

רבים השתתפו בתפילה בכותל המערבי לרפואת החולים בקורונה בסין ובעולם

In a special prayer service held at the Western Wall, many prayed for the entire world, and China in particular, to overcome the spread of the Corona virus, and for a speedy recovery to all those who are ill.
The Rabbi of the Western Wall, Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, said: The Western Wall is a prayer site for Jews and non-Jews. We pray that China will overcome the Corona virus and that it will not spread in China or elsewhere around the world.

Interesting Facts

The Western Wall Plaza hosts approximately 60,000 people. It symbolizes the Jewish link to Jerusalem and serves as the synagogue closest to the remains of both Holy Temples.
The Western Wall's visible stones tell of its history from the time of the Holy Temples' ruin. The original Herodian stones are distinct from the others in size and in their unique borders.
The building style of "grading" used when layering the Western Wall's stones, teaches us that the Temple Mount's walls were not perpendicular but marginally sloping.
