Today, Sunday evening, Israeli media reported that the Minister of Immigration and Absorption, Benina Tamanu-Shata, had been infected with the new Corona virus.
Local reports stated that Tamanu-Shata, a politician of Ethiopian origin who belongs to the “Blue-White” coalition headed by the Minister of Defense, Benny Gantz, underwent a special examination to detect the Corona virus that gave positive results, and is now under quarantine.
She explained that the Minister of Immigration and Absorption visited the Israeli Knesset for the last time on August 19, and she had direct contacts with a number of representatives.
During a session of Parliament’s Finance Committee, which was held today, its chairman, Mickey Levin, asked some of the representatives belonging to “Blue and White” to leave the building due to their contact with Tamanu-Shata.
A Knesset spokesman confirmed that he would continue an “epidemiological investigation” into the case in coordination with representatives of the Israeli Ministry of Health.
