The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his staff reportedly will self-isolate as a result of an adviser testing positive for the coronavirus. The self isolation was reported by The Jerusalem Post. 

The Post has identified the adviser as Rivka Paluch. Netanyahu's office is reportedly denying that the prime minister will be quarantined for a week.

Several other world leaders have either contracted the virus or self-isolated after coming in close contact with it. 

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson last week announced he has the virus.
