JERUSALEM (VINnews) — Defense Minister Benny Gantz together with MK Moshe Arbel, Home Command head Uri Gordin and senior defense ministry officials visited Tuesday the Prima Palace hotel in Jerusalem which has been adapted into a COVID-19 convalescence hotel for the Chareidi sector. To date 11 “corona” hotels have been adapted specifically for the Chareidi public and there are 4000 people in these hotels, including both patients and isolated persons. Gantz announced that by the end of this week two more hotels will be opened to cater to the needs of the Chareidi public.
He added that “we are broadening the activity of the COVID-19 convalescence hotels and adapting them for the Chareidi public and for the general public in an attempt to step up our war on the virus. The entire defense apparatus has been conscripted into the effort in order to save lives.”
