Israel Health Minister Yaakov Litzman, who previously claimed that the coronavirus was “divine punishment against homosexuality,” has tested positive for the virus.
Naya Daur reports:
Israeli Health Minister Yaakov Litzman and his wife have tested positive for coronavirus. The minister had termed the deadly coronavirus as ‘punishment for homosexuality’ last month.
According to the report, last month, Yaakov Litzman, while discussing the coronavirus, said:
It’s a divine punishment against homosexuality.
And now, earlier this month, Litzman and his wife have tested positive for the virus, forcing Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and several top government officials of the country to go into quarantine.
The Times of Israel reports Litzman ignored social distancing guidelines and in so doing endangered Israel’s leaders:
Health Minister Yaakov Litzman, who tested positive for the coronavirus late Wednesday, allegedly broke his own ministry’s guidelines on social distancing by attending group prayer services in the days before he was diagnosed, a TV report said Thursday.
