The commission said: ‘Prisoner Abu Wa’er, who is suffering from throat cancer and is in a serious and complicated condition, was transferred last Tuesday from the Gilboa Prison to a hospital in Afula for a number of tests, including a Coronavirus test, and it turned out that he was not sick… Later he was transferred to Assaf Harofeh [Hospital] for a number of tests, including a Coronavirus test, and it turned out that he had contracted the virus.’  

It should be noted that after his contraction [of the virus] was confirmed, prisoner Abu Wa’er, prisoners of his wing of the Gilboa Prison, the prison manager, and 23 prison guards were put into quarantine.”
