MP Gilad Kariv hospitalized because of the coronavirus – .

Labor MP Gilad Kariv was hospitalized on Monday evening after his coronavirus symptoms worsened. Kariv has been put on oxygen, but he is feeling fine.

Kariv thanked the medical staff and called on young Israelis to get vaccinated.

Labor MK tested positive for coronavirus last week. A Kariv adviser has also tested positive for the virus.

Kariv was one of five MPs diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past two weeks. The others are United Arab List MP Ofer Cassif, Yesh Atid MP Inbal Bezek and Zionist religious MPs Simcha Rothman and Itamar Ben-Gvir.

Most MPs said they were surprised by the positive test and had not suffered any deterioration in their health. But Kariv and Cassif had more serious problems because of the virus.
