First casualty of Coronavirus in Israel: 88-year old Holocaust survivor

As the crisis of the Coronavirus continues in Israel, sad news emerges of the first death from it: a man who'd survived the Holocaust:
The Health Ministry reported Israel's first death from COVID-19 disease Friday.

Aryeh Even, 88, was hospitalized and placed in the quarantine unit for coronavirus patients at Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem about a week ago. He arrived in severe condition and was reported to have been suffering from a number of underlying conditions.

At the hospital, Even received several treatments from medical staff in an attempt to combat his symptoms. However, during the week, the elderly patient suffered from cardiac arrest. He was resuscitated but his condition remained stagnant.

Even's condition worsened in the hours leading up to death, and he passed away at 9 p.m.

Aryeh was a Holocaust survivor from Hungary who was able to rebuild his life in Israel, his grandson, Maor, told Maariv, The Jerusalem Post's sister publication. He is survived by four children, 18 grandchildren and one great-grandson.

Before being hospitalized, Even was living in the Migdal Nofim assisted living facility in Jerusalem’s Kiryat Hayovel neighborhood, Israel Hayom reported. Six other seniors from the same facility have also contracted coronavirus, one of whom is in severe condition at Hadassah-University Medical Center, in Jerusalem’s Ein Kerem. Her situation began to deteriorate on the same day that Even passed away.
This is terribly sad news. Condolences to the family.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
