Rivkah Paloch, Netanyahu’s aid on Ultra-Orthodox issues, was infected by her husband and was confirmed as a carrier on Sunday and entered a quarantine.

She had met with ministers and Members of Knesset in recent days but was wearing a mask and gloves while in the Knesset.

Sources in Netanyahu’s office said that they “will act according to the Ministry of Health’s directives.”

Netanyahu, 70, will be tested for Corona on Monday. He had already been screened a week and a half ago and was tested negative.

There are currently four MKs in quarantine, two of the ministers.

The number of Coronavirus cases in Israel on Sunday rose to 4,247, the Ministry of Health confirmed, as three more people died, bringing the number of deaths attributed to COVID-19 among Israelis to 15.

The number of total cases released by the Ministry Sunday night showed a 17 per cent increase on Saturday. Out of the over 4,000 people tested positive, 74 are in serious condition with 59 on ventilators.

    Will he be forced in to quarantine, is that a necessary attitude?
