Benjamin Netanyahu to self-isolate for a week after minister tests positive

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will sell-isolate until next Wednesday, according to a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office.

It follows the announcement that Health Minister Yaakov Litzman tested positive for the coronavirus. Litzman’s wife also tested positive.

Given the Health Minister’s role in policy-making during the coronavirus crisis, many other senior Israeli officials are also expected to go into immediate self-quarantine.

Among those being considered for possible self-isolation by health officials, according to multiple reports on Israeli media, is Yossi Cohen, the head of the Mossad intelligence service.
