Israel’s coronavirus count rises to 1,238
The new coronavirus figure released by Health Ministry Monday morning was 1, 238 including 24 in serious condition. Out of a group of 114 Chabad Hassidim arriving from New York last week, 65 are in quarantine at the Dan Hotel in Jerusalem after testing positive for coronavirus. The other 200 passengers and crew on the El Al plane that flew them home are being contacted so that they can go into self-quarantine. The flight took off a day after Chabad headquarters in Crown Heights was closed over an outbreak of covid-19 in the neighborhood.
