Although suspected of being infected with the Omicron variant, cardiologist Sheba Hospital in Tel Hashomer Dr. Danny Elian and Prof. Elad Maor refused to stay at the Corona Hotel.
However, despite the instructions, Dr. Elian and Prof. Maor refused to move to the motel and decided on their own to stay in home isolation. Sources involved in the matter confirm to Maariv that the two did so with the knowledge of the director of Sheba Medical Center, Prof. Isaac Kreis This is contrary to the official position of the Ministry of Health.
In response to the allegations, Sheba says: “After an examination of the isolation conditions in which the doctors are staying, which according to the suspicion may have been infected with Omicron, a request was submitted for the continuation of the isolation period under current conditions. We are awaiting the Ministry of Health’s decision.” The Corona virus information headquarters said that “with the exception of returnees from red countries (up to the test results they did upon entering the country), there is currently no sweeping isolation obligation in the hotel.”
