United Torah Judaism MK Yisrael Eichler has tested positive for COVID-19.

Eichler, 66, was infected with COVID in late 2020 and was since vaccinated.

Earlier in the day, Defense Minister Benny Gantz’s office announced that he was quarantining after a member of his staff tested positive for COVID.

Likud MKs Haim Katz and Etti Atiya and Shas MK Yoav Bentzur tested positive for COVID yesterday. Deputy Foreign Minister Idan Roll and Blue and White MK Michael Biton tested positive last week.
