When Eli Beer, founder and president of the United Hatzalah first responder organization,  returned to Israel from Miami on April 21 following his recovery from COVID-19, he was given a hero’s welcome at Ben-Gurion Airport. He recovered from the coronavirus after spending weeks at the University of Miami hospital in serious condition. 

 After his condition deteriorated, Beer required sedation and spent nearly two weeks on a ventilator in the intensive care unit.

He told his story to KAN's Mark Weiss.
