IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi

IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi entered self-quarantine on Tuesday after having learned that an individual who attended a debate at which he was also present, was diagnosed with the COVID-19 coronavirus.

The debate, held 10 days ago, was also attended by the head of the IDF Home Front Command and the head of the IDF Operations Directorate. Both also went into isolation as well.


All three will remain in isolation until this weekend, when the full 14-day incubation period will have elapsed.

An IDF spokesperson told media the Chief of Staff – who is quarantined at his office and is continuing with his regular schedule from that location — has shown no symptoms and so far feels good. He will be examined this week.
