Israeli Boy Gets COVID 3 Times
By Micah Halpern
Alon Helfgott, an 11 year old boy from Kfar Saba, Israel has had COVID-19 three times. He has had three different variants of the corona virus.
Alon contracted the Alpha variant, then the Delta variant and now he has Omicron.
And despite it all, he is maintaining a positive attitude.
According to this upbeat 11 year old: “I’m fine, feeling pretty healthy, without so many symptoms … During the Alpha [infection], I suffered from a high fever … My mother bought me some sweets at the supermarket and I hope I get more things,”
Helfgott reports that around 10 out of his 27 classmates are also currently ill with COVID-19. He acknowledged that: “I miss being with friends, because the truth is there is nothing to do. You’re shuttered at home and do nothing.”
Like most children with COVID, Alon’s biggest hurdle is boredom. He’s in isolation and alone - except for his phone.
Having COVID-19 three times is truly a unique experience.
I wish Elon Helfgott a speedy and complete recovery.
