Jerusalem councilman in virus quarantine shows up for discussion, causing panic

A Jerusalem Municipality meeting is abruptly halted after Councilman Yohanan Weitzman (United Torah Judaism) shows up even though he is supposed to be in coronavirus quarantine.

Weitzman, whose daughter was recently diagnosed with COVID-19, claims he doesn’t need to be in isolation, Hebrew-language media reports.

But other council members disagree and refuse to continue the discussion until he leaves. Everyone leaves the hall and a security guard is summoned.
