A 24-year-old man, a resident of Moshav Brachia near Ashkelon, is accused of violating isolation despite knowing he was infected with the corona virus, and left his home to attend a party.
According to the indictment filed today (Monday) in the Magistrate’s Court in Be’er Sheva, the young man was diagnosed with corona following symptoms that were discovered in him and a corona examination was performed on him.
Although he knew he was in solitary confinement, and despite a conversation with a doctor in which it was made clear to him that he must remain in solitary confinement, the young man left his house at night and joined a party held at the nearby Hoodia seat.
The indictment stated that about 20 or more people attended the party, some of whom did not wear masks on their faces.
“The defendant attended the party, knowing that he was suffering from corona and that he could infect other participants at the party and endanger their lives,” the indictment said.
The indictment further states that “in his above-mentioned acts, the defendant committed an act that could spread a disease that endangers lives.”
The precedent-setting indictment was filed in respect of section 218 of the Penal Code, which states that “a person who negligently commits an act that may spread a life-threatening illness is liable to imprisonment for three years; he committed the act intentionally, he is liable to imprisonment for seven years.”
The State Attorney’s Office stated, “The State Attorney’s Office, in cooperation with the Israel Police, will continue to act resolutely against violators of the law and regulations in order to eradicate the spread of the virus, and in appropriate cases, indictments will be filed against people who endanger the public.”
