Widow of Tel Aviv COVID patient whose breathing tube detached: ‘We’re demanding answers’

The coronavirus patient who died at Tel Aviv’s Ichilov Hospital after the breathing tube for his ventilator detached is identified as Moshe Harazi.

Harazi, a 47-year-old Tel Aviv resident, was a married father of five.

“We’re demanding answers,” his widow Tali tells the Ynet news site.

Ichilov has said medical staff failed to notice the tube was detached for several minutes, attributing the accident to the burden on hospitals as Israel faces its worst wave yet of the pandemic.
