Following an epidemiological investigation conducted by representatives of the Ministry of Health, it emerged that Ministers Zeev Elkin, Yaakov Avitan, Orly Levy Abacis and a number of their advisers were required today (Sunday) to go into home isolation, in light of their exposure to Minister Rafi Peretz, who was found blue last night. The isolation of the ministers is expected to end on August 9.
In addition, Intelligence Minister Eli Cohen and Likud MKs Avi Dichter and Osnat Mark, as well as three of their advisers (two by MK Mark and one by Minister Cohen), went into isolation.
Housing Minister Yaakov Litzman also met with Minister Peretz, but according to the instructions of the Ministry of Health, in view of the fact that he has already contracted the virus, he does not need to go into isolation.
As you may recall, the Minister of Jerusalem and Heritage, Rafi Peretz, said last night that it became clear to him that he had been diagnosed positive for a corona examination. “I feel good now, and wish a complete cure for all patients,” Peretz wrote on his Twitter account.
