Secretary Normal of the Palestinian Liberation Group (PLO) Saeb Erekat has been urgently transported to Israel as a result of respiration issues. He contracted Covid-19 two weeks in the past.

Erekat, 65, was evacuated from his residence in Jericho within the West Financial institution to the Hadassah Medical Heart campus in West Jerusalem’s Ein Kerem neighborhood after his situation worsened on Sunday, the PLO Negotiations Affairs Division stated. In response to the group’s assertion, the politician was transferred as a result of “persistent well being issues he faces within the respiratory system.”

Amichai Stein, a reporter for the Israeli public broadcaster KAN, wrote on social media that Tel Aviv has authorized the request by the Palestinian Authority to have Erekat transferred for pressing remedy.

The PLO confirmed that Erekat, a outstanding Palestinian diplomat, examined optimistic for Covid-19 on October 8. Stories on the time stated that he was quarantined at residence and experiencing delicate signs. The politician is believed to be susceptible to Covid-19 problems as a result of his medical historical past, which incorporates surviving a coronary heart assault in 2012 and receiving a lung transplant in 2017.
