In the shadow of the increase in Corona virus and the second closure imposed on Israel, which became the first country in the world to impose a second general closure, Moshe Bar-Siman Tov, former director general of the Ministry of Health, was interviewed by the Marciano Foundation in the main edition of News 12. In morbidity and what should be done.
“We went back to the routine instead of going back to the Corona routine,” said Moshe Bar Siman Tov. “When we saw the numbers go up we didn’t fix it right away.”
Bar a good sign made it clear that “it’s okay we tried” to get back to routine, “but the problem is that we did not correct the decision in time.”
He pointed an accusing finger at the education system and said that “at first we went out in an orderly fashion, the studies in the lower grades were in capsules and then it eroded.”
The man who led the fight in the first wave, with considerable success, sees the education system as the main culprit in its spread of the virus. He said, “The kids got mixed up in classes and in the afternoons on shuttles. We started negotiating with the virus and he doesn’t like being cornered. 200-300,000 teaching staff all over the country and walking around, if the rules are not followed the virus is valid.”
And what is his opinion on the second closure? In his opinion, he has a chance to succeed because there are no studies in educational institutions. “It is admittedly less effective than what we took in the first wave because people are less strict about the rules and there are more gatherings,” says Bar Siman Tov, “which means the closure will have to be longer.”

Bar Siman Tov pointed out the difference between the first and second wave and said that in the first wave “decisions were made quickly and were matter-of-fact and fast”, but now, in the second wave, “the government has changed and something in the decision-making mechanism has changed. “That keeps the public healthy. When you take the time, the virus works – you have to work fast.”
Bar Siman Tov was asked about the horror scenarios he scattered when accused by Litzman of causing panic and saying that “I feared in the first wave that the death toll could reach more than 5,000 and now there are scenarios of higher numbers. Difficult scenarios could have happened then and can occur today. We will reach winter with an increase in the number of serious patients, so the health system will not be able to provide the answer and the numbers will increase. “
Bar Siman Tov implicitly blamed Naftali Bennett and said that “we did not leak any conversation within the cabinet or from a limited forum and were not interviewed – we migrated the plague. We brought achievements that were unparalleled in the world.”
When asked about the Gamzo traffic light, Bar Siman Tov said that “I have a hard time seeing the traffic light work. A person living in Bnei Brak will not go to a restaurant in Ramat Gan? My son’s assistant in the green neighborhood of Jerusalem and she comes from a red neighborhood, will not come to work?”.
