Second fatality of virus named as Malka Keva, 67

Hebrew media reports identify the woman who died of COVID-19 as Malka Keva, 67, of the central city of Bat Yam.

Keva, who died at the Wolfson Medical Center, had worked at the hospital for 30 years, according to Channel 12. Several years ago, she fell ill with cancer and had been in a weakened state when she contracted the virus.

Her grandson, Mor Yeffet, writes on Facebook that Kevah was “the lioness of the family, you did everything for us up until the last moment.”

“If only I could hug you one more time,” he writes. “I wanted to leave quarantine and come visit you in the hospital to say goodbye, but they wouldn’t let me. Why is the world so cruel?”
