Israel’s Minister of Defense Naftali Bennett has this critical urgent message.
Usually, we think that if we love people then we have to visit them, help them, bring them food etc. These days of the coronavirus have changed all that 180 degrees. Now, because we love and care about people we MUST stay far away from them! Each and every one of us can potentially pass on the coronavirus to others. Hence, we must stay away from everyone and stay home. If you love your parents and grandparents then stay away from them until this coronavirus is contained. The elderly are more susceptible to be affected by the coronavirus, so stay away!
Israel’s First CoronaVirus Death
An 88-year-old Holocaust survivor, Aryeh Even, died at the Shaare Zedek Hospital in Jerusalem after being diagnosed with coronavirus. He is the first death in Israel from coronavirus.
Aryeh Even was the 45th confirmed case of coronavirus in Israel. He lived in a Jerusalem nursing home and was likely infected after being near a social worker in the nursing home who contracted the virus from a French tourist.
Even had suffered from multiple and significant preexisting conditions, arrived at the hospital in very serious condition a week ago and was hospitalized in the isolated ward dedicated to coronavirus patients.
“The patient was treated extensively, comprehensively and closely by the staff and underwent CPR during the week as a result of heart failure,” the hospital said on Friday evening. “In the last few hours, his condition had deteriorated and he passed away about an hour ago.”
Israel’s Health Ministry has confirmed that the number of coronavirus cases in Israel are over 800, fifteen of whom are in serious condition.
Considering over 800 Italians just died from the coronavirus today alone, Israel is still in a comparably much better situation.
