"In times like this it's not worth it to take too many risks," said Gantz.

Alternate Prime Minister Benny Gantz was released from Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer on Sunday after having visited the hospital after feeling unwell for a consultation with his personal physician Dr. Shlomo Segev.
Gantz underwent tests at the hospital before being released.
Afterward, Gantz tweeted a video of himself in his office, assuring Israelis that "everything is ok."
 
"In times like this it's not worth it to take too many risks," said Gantz. "We stopped, a small check, everything's ok. I'm back in the Kirya, I'm continuing my work [and] soon the cabinet meeting will start. We're here in order to continue serving you."
In August, Gantz underwent back surgery at Sheba for a serious back injury caused during his military service that he had suffered from for years and that had recently worsened. The visit on Sunday was unrelated to the back surgery.
