A resident of a nursing home in Beersheba tests negative for the coronavirus, a day after health authorities diagnosed the woman, 87, with COVID-19, the Kan public broadcaster reports.

The woman was hospitalized after feeling ill. The initial test was positive for COVID-19, sparking fears of a renewed outbreak in the Mishan assisted living facility, where 14 people have died of the coronavirus.

But a second test Sunday has turned up negative.

According to Channel 12, all the residents are being tested as a precaution.
