Rav Chaim Kanievsky Transferred to Intensive Care Unit


rav-chaim-kanievskyRav Chaim Kanievsky, who was hospitalized yesterday at Mayanei Hayeshuva Medical Center in Bnei Brak after feeling unwell, was transferred to the Intensive Care Unit after his fever intensified at about noon today. Yesterday, doctors said that Rav Chaim would be released to his home for Shabbos, but the deterioration in his condition will require him to remain hospitalized.

“Rav Chaim’s condition is stable,” said Moshe Friedman, spokesman for Mayanei Hayeshuah. “He was transferred to the ICU because that is where he could get the absolute best medical treatment.”

R’  Chananiah Cholek, noted askan with Ezer Mizion, transported Rav Chaim yesterday after visiting him at his Rechov Rashbam home and determining that medical tests should be performed.

Now it seems that Rav Chaim’s hospital stay will be for a longer period than initially estimated.

All are asked to continue davening for the amud haTorah, Rav Shmaryahu Yosef Chaim ben Pesha Miriam.
