Born After 17 Years, Baby Hospitalized with Covid

A one-year-old toddler, born to a Chabad family in Tzfas after 17 years of waiting, is listed in critical condition after contracting the coronavirus.

A one-year-old toddler, born to a Chabad family in Tzfas after 17 years of waiting, was hospitalized on Friday after contracting the coronavirus and is now listed in critical condition.

In an interview with Yoav Mintz, Professor Salman Zarka, who heads the Rebecca Sieff Hospital in Tzfas, shared his account of standing in front of a one-year-old and two-month-old toddler in a critical condition.

The toddler, a member of a family of Chabad family in Tzfas was born after 17 years of waiting. She has been hospitalized since Friday, after falling ill to COVID-19.

Just a few days ago, a newborn baby died after being delivered to a coronavirus patient in an emergency surgery at Hadassah-University Medical Center in Ein Kerem.

Addressing the latest lockdown Dr. Zarka said “Unfortunately, I do not see the impact of the lockdowns on the hospitals. The previous closures were perhaps more effective, perhaps the citizens cooperated more. I want to phrase it carefully, but it’s hard to call this thing a closure.”

Please spare a moment to say Tehilim for Ayala bas Chana Natalie Chantal, who is in urgent need of a refuah shelaima.
