It all began less than a month ago. 45-year-old Yoel Glatt, from the Shomron town of Einav, a senior paramedic in Magen David Adom, began to feel unwell. He had not recently returned from abroad, did not meet with a confirmed patient, there were less than 30 cases in the country, and Yoel did not think even for a moment about the possibility that he had contracted the coronavirus.
After an examination at a local clinic, he was referred to Beilinson Hospital, where he was diagnosed with the virus, patient number 29. He was transferred to the Sharon Hospital, and was hospitalized for almost two weeks until his condition improved and he fully recovered.
