Finance Minister Avigdor Liberman says he tested positive for coronavirus, joining several other ministers who have contracted COVID-19 over the past week.

In a tweet, Liberman writes that he “feels good” and will quarantine at his home in the West Bank settlement of Nokdim.

“I will continue to lead a responsible economic policy from home, keep track of the data and plan steps ahead,” he says.

Also testing positive for coronavirus is Likud MK David Amsalem, swelling the list of lawmakers currently infected with COVID.
