Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu tested negative for coronavirus earlier this week. He is not required to self-isolate, since the affected security guards did not come in contact with him.

Of those, 35 people are in serious condition and 26 are on ventilators. A full 15, 357 Israelis have recovered from coronavirus.
