12 days after the start of the second closure, Health Minister Yuli Edelstein said this morning (Tuesday) that the closure restrictions are expected to continue even after the holidays. In an interview with Gali Tzahal, he said that there will be some relief after Simchat Torah, but these depend on the level of morbidity in the coming weeks.

“The closure will not be lifted – unequivocally. There is no scenario that in ten days we will lift everything and say ‘everything is over, everything is fine’. The closure will definitely continue, although there will be some relief in it,” Edelstein said. “I don’t know if it will continue in its current form, but you have to understand that it is not here for two weeks so we go back to our normal lives. It depends on the disease state. We have to get used to the idea that we are going to live with the corona for quite some time.”

“This time we will not succumb to the pressures of any sector or industry that will demonstrate and shout, we will not make the same mistake twice. The opening of the economy and of all our fabric of life will be gradual,” he clarified. “After Simchat Torah, we will examine the level of restrictions versus the level of morbidity, and it will be different from the previous time. If there are changes and facilitations, they will probably be marginal.”

He also referred to the Prime Minister’s assessment last night, according to which the health system should prepare for a scenario of 1,500 critically ill patients. “I hope we do not get there, but definitely the system is also preparing for difficult scenarios,” he said.

Asked about the continuation of demonstrations against the prime minister, Edelstein said that “it will end in thousands more patients and in more difficult patients in hospitals. We all have to take responsibility, nothing will happen if people find other ways to protest. It is their right but it can be done All the rules. “

According to data from the Ministry of Health, 1,121 new corona patients were identified during Yom Kippur, out of 8,105 tests performed. The condition of 755 patients is defined as serious, of which 207 are respirated. The number of victims increased last night by 8 and now stands at 1,507 in total.
