The deputy mayor of Jerusalem and holder of an education portfolio, Avraham Bezalel, who is today (Tuesday) positive about the corona virus, talks about the difficult feelings and the fear of his family being infected with the virus.
He calls on the public to obey the instructions: “There is a severe epidemic here and we must wake up.”
Bezalel says that he began to feel weakness and pain in his bones during Yom Kippur prayers, but believed that these were symptoms of fasting. “I thought the pains in the joints came from the effort of prayer and fasting together, later a cough also started. My son from Saturday did not smell. Of course he stayed home and kept the insulation. “After I felt the symptoms, I decided that on the evening of Yom Kippur, when my son went for a test, I would also be tested, just to rule out the possibility that I was ill.”
The deputy mayor says he apparently stuck to a limited quorum where he prayed on Rosh Hashanah: “I do not see any other place where I could get stuck, even though the quorum where I prayed kept all the guidelines, including adherence to distances and masks throughout the prayer.”
He points out that he used to adhere strictly to the rules and in any case he adhered: “We must adhere to the rules, but even those who adhere – are not immune.”
Bezalel, who is very active in the municipality, met with many people during his work, but he said he was very strict about the guidelines, so that only a few would go into isolation.
Those who will have to go into isolation are Deputy Mayor Yossi Deitch and Israel Kellerman, due to the fact that they sat next to him on the city council. He also met at a faction meeting with council member Shmuel Marciano who is currently abroad. Although he also met with Deputy Mayor Zvika Cohen, due to the fact that he has already fallen ill in Corona, he probably will not have to go into isolation.
The deputy mayor describes the feeling after being infected: “The feeling is not so good, I am very weak, I have had a fever in the last few hours, and I am experiencing symptoms such as coughing and bone pain.”
He said, “The feeling that you still do not know whether your family and children have been infected or not is in itself difficult, it is an unpleasant situation that no one wants to go through.”
In a conversation with him, he says: “The phone keeps ringing, people keep turning so that I can take care of evacuating them to the motel, as if I am not in this situation. In this role there is really no freedom…
“God made me feel how the people who turn to me feel, so that I know what they need.”
Regarding the possibility that he himself will be evacuated to a motel, he says that the move depends on the results of his family members’ tests:
His message: The guidelines must be strictly adhered to, as the members of the Council of Sages of the Torah, headed by Maran Rosh Yeshiva Chacham Shalom Cohen, emphatically ordered “all prayers to be held in the open sword, and no prayers to be held indoors.”
