Comment on those who continued to make minyanim, I'd love to have an intelligent discussion on the matter:
1. Those who view halacha as primarily chukim(positivist?) and so any clever "workaround/loophole" will do, imho miss the point by finding ways to continue exposure by letter of the law. Remember sakanta (danger) chamura (we're more strict) than issura (ritual issues)
2. I would assume that anyone not obeying the Israeli government rules had received a psak not to do so, otherwise they would be bound by local law. Those who gave such a psak will explain themselves I'm sure. Accepting such a psak is a separate discussion.
3. Lo plug (we don't differentiate) is a minyan breaking consideration (as well as the impact on those who don't have minyan availability)
4.Joining in the general suffering of the Jewish people is a well established principle as well\
So what is appropriate if one finds oneself in such a minyan? Leave? Give tochecha?...
