Bethlehem, the city of peace and the cradle of Jesus Christ, has been living in a state of anxiety and fear for its residents who have been infected with the Coronavirus for seven consecutive days.
The number of people infected with the virus has reached 31 people, including those who are subject to home quarantine, and some of them are subject to quarantine at the Angel Hotel in Beit Jala. In addition, 2,900 cases are subject to home quarantine.
Violet Rafidi, a journalist from Palestine International Radio, conducted a telephone interview with a Coronavirus patient, who was staying at the Angel Hotel in Beit Jala, and reported that Sultan Mubarak, works as a financial auditor in the Angel Hotel in Beit Jala, from 11 pm until 7 am. He did not show any symptoms of the disease, but the hotel manager, Mrs. Mariana Al-Arja, called him and asked to come to the hotel for examination by doctors from the Ministry of Health and take samples for testing, because the Greek delegation that was staying in the hotel was infected with Corona virus. Although he did not deal directly with the Greek delegation infected with Corona virus, the infection was transmitted to him thru the computer used in the hotel.
He went to the hotel and tested the Coronavirus infection, and then he got back home waiting for the result. At that time, his family visited, and he played with the little girl without taking any precautions with no clue he was infected by the virus. Unfortunately, the infection passed directly to the two-year-old niece.
