The Deep Knowledge group put Israel in first place among countries around the world when it comes to promoting safety amid the coronavirus pandemic, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s media adviser announced Tuesday.
The Deep Knowledge Group is “an investment fund focused on AI and DeepTech, which values knowledge above profit,” its website says.
Netanyahu announced severe new restrictions Monday night in an effort to curtail the spread of the virus. To date, 17 Israelis have succumbed to the disease,
During the announcement, the prime minister Netanyahu mentioned that he was addressing Israelis from isolation, as he had been in contact with another person confirmed to be infected with COVID-19 – his aide, Rivka Paluch. The only other person in the room was the cameraman, who was six meters away, he said.
He added that he had done his own hair and makeup before the broadcast, quipping that was why he looked like he did.
Test results showed that Netanyahu, 70, is not infected with the virus.
Israel has been a world leader in taking steps to protect its citizens since the start of the pandemic.
Hundreds of Israelis have returned home from abroad as the coronavirus pandemic continued to threaten populations across the globe.
In fact, aliyah (immigration to Israel) continued during the past several weeks with 961 immigrants arriving in Israel since the beginning of the month, despite the global coronavirus crisis and the closure of borders and skies in many countries.
