Adviser to the Israeli Prime Minister was diagnosed with a coronavirus.
Israel’s 1st Prime Minister will go into quarantine from Monday as a precautionary measure after his adviser was diagnosed with a new coronavirus.
According to a statement from Netanyahu’s press service, he has not been in the same room with the patient for the past two weeks, so the quarantine is not necessary, but the Prime Minister and his closest aides decided to go into voluntary self-isolation until the end of the “epidemiological investigation.”
According to the Knesset, the coronavirus was diagnosed in an adviser to the Prime Minister named Rivka Palukh. According to Israeli media, Netanyahu saw her on Thursday.
The statement emphasizes that the Prime Minister has recently restricted social contacts and held most meetings online.
According to Johns Hopkins University on Monday morning, there were 4347 confirmed cases of coronavirus infection in Israel.
