26-year-old Oshri Asulin from Kfar Saba died on Sunday evening at Sheba Hospital from complications caused by COVID-19, after having already recovered from the virus.

Asulin had been hospitalized for about two months before his death. His funeral was scheduled for Sunday night.

Channel 12 News reported that Asulin arrived at Tel Hashomer Hospital suffering from strong abdominal pain and fever. He underwent a coronavirus test which came back positive, following which his condition deteriorated quickly and he developed a heart condition that has been reported in a small number of cases of children who also caught the virus.

The Mayor of Kfar Saba, Rafi Sa'ar, eulogized Asulin, saying, "We were saddened by the passing of our resident Oshri Asulin, whose life was cut short at just 26 years old. Dear Oshri, a smiling and lively young man, died after contracting the coronavirus several weeks ago and after fighting the illness. I send a warm embrace and consolations from here on behalf of all the residents of the city. May his memory be a blessing.”

In the last 24 hours, there were 83 new cases of coronavirus diagnosed in Israel. 3,380 Israelis are currently infected with the virus. The total number of cases on respirators remains the same and stands at 24.
