An 11-year-old girl is in serious condition at Rambam Hospital in Haifa after contracting the coronavirus.

The girl's father, Elihu Biton, described his daughter's condition. "My daughter was in pain, and as a father when you do not know how to help your daughter, I was helpless."

"I ask all the people of Israel to read a chapter of Psalms for Hadas bat Ora. It will be very helpful," he said.

11-year-old Hadas was staying with her family in the coronavirus hotel "Kinner," and was hospitalized last Friday with severe symptoms. The girl's condition deteriorated last night and she was transferred from Poriya Hospital in Tiberias to Rambam Medical Center in Haifa.

"We saw that there was a deterioration in her heart's condition. Her breathing was fine, but because of the decline in the heart's function they decided to put her on a ventilator so that there would be no crashes in the other systems. Hadas is very afflicted and I and my wife are away from her. We're just broken.

"It's a very difficult feeling, but at the same time, with all the pain, 'Though I walk in the valley of the shadow of death, I will feel no evil, for thou art with me. You are really, really close to the creator of the world and you receive powers of hope and faith, and with the help of God she will heal and recover out of this."
