    Zamira, who was hospitalized on March 28, is survived by three children and nine grandchildren.
    “Nobody from Mishan Be’er Sheva or Mishan in general showed interest in my mother and us, her nuclear family,” said Zamira’s son Ofer. “They did not call, did not ask, did not care. They put our mother in the statistical maze and disappeared.”
    Mishan is a network of senior living facilities across Israel.
    The assisted living facility has been heavily criticized for neglecting the ill residents and for not alerting the medical personnel and doctors soon enough. Since the start of the epidemic, nursing homes around the country have been under fire for not dealing with the health crisis in an adequate manner, leading to deaths that many say could have been prevented.
