Professor Ruthi Shako-Levi, a prominent doctor in Soroka Hospital in Be’er Sheva called upon the public to take active measures to avoid isolation ahead of the mass protest that took place in Rabin Square in Tel Aviv on Motzei Shabbos.
Shako-Levi wrote on social media that protesters should leave their cellphones at home to avoid being instructed to enter quarantine. “Whoever comes tonight and doesn’t want to go into isolation for two weeks should do himself a favor and leave his smartphone at home.”
High ranking officials in the Health Ministry slammed Shako-Levi’s message to flagrantly disregard the Health Ministry regulations.
Health Ministry Chief of Staff Kobi Tzoref filed a complaint against Shako-Levi, stating that her message was “a serious post encouraging violation of the law in a way that endangers the public.”
