Rabbi Yaakov Litzman

Litzman, 71, and his wife are in good condition and have entered quarantine at home, an official statement said.

Litzman is accused of interfering in the defence of Malka Leifer. She is facing extradition to Australia to face 74 charges of child sexual abuse.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was updated on the developments.

Litzman will continue to maintain a regular agenda from his home, in line with medical recommendations, his office stated.

Litzman has been in contact in recent days with Netanyahu, many senior government officials and the Ministry of Health’s senior management. It is yet unclear who may be forced to enter quarantine.

The announcement on Litzman’s medical state came hours after Netanyahu exited the quarantine he entered after being exposed to the virus by his aid on ultra-Orthodox issues, who was diagnosed with Coronavirus.

6,092 Israelis have contracted the virus, 27 of whom have died. 241 Israelis have recovered from the virus.
