Yamina MK Yomtob Kalfon tests positive for COVID-19, joining a long line of officials who have been infected over the past week.

Yesterday, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid tested positive for COVID, and at least half a dozen other MKs also have the virus. Public Security Minister Omer Barlev also recently tested positive.

So far, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett — who has been vaccinated three times — has continued to test negative despite his exposure to several COVID patients.
