The dedicated headquarters will be established in the city of Ramla, when it will be an independent headquarters that will conduct the investigations and telephone calls to the Corona patients in an orderly manner. The headquarters will be professionally subordinate to Prof. Gamzo and the Ministry of Health, and will have over 1,000 researchers in the first phase who will be added to the 300 researchers who are already working in the Ministry of Health.
It will be recalled that the Ministry of Health did not like the transfer of the mission to the army, and today the director general of the Ministry of Health, Prof. Hezi Levy, published a letter to Ministry of Health employees emphasizing that the responsibility for treating the corona crisis will remain with the ministry. When the headquarters was interrupted, the office chain failed and he showed a clear lack of control.
The headquarters will employ about 1,300 researchers, some of whom are currently being recruited. Among other things, there will be those who can turn to specific populations, such as the ultra-Orthodox, when they are required to speak Yiddish. “The goal,” say the Home Front Command, “is to enable us to reach every patient as soon as it becomes clear that he has been infected with the virus, and to reach every Elul who has been exposed to it. This way we can break the chain of infection and prevent the spread of the disease.”
