After the discussion in the Corona Cabinet, which ended without agreement, Corona Professor Prof. Roni Gamzo, director of Magen Israel, will today (Tuesday) hold tours and meetings in the red cities in the ultra-Orthodox sector, where corona morbidity levels are particularly high, to closely examine urban functioning To be activated in order to stop the contagion chain in every city and town.
Meanwhile, cabinet ministers quoted by IDF waves came out against Prof. Gamzo, saying he “seemed at a loss.” They said, “What happened in the Corona cabinet yesterday was embarrassing. The things said were empty slogans with no concrete suggestion. He did not suggest any way to lower the numbers. ”
The cities that Gamzo will visit are Elad, Beit Shemesh and Modi’in Illit. A similar tour is also planned in the red cities in the Arab sector. The tour will be accompanied by a reserve general, Roni Noma, and representatives from the Home Front Command, the local government center, the Ministry of the Interior and the HMOs.
As you may recall, yesterday the Corona Cabinet convened to discuss a proposal to remove the restrictions on weekends and allow access to the playgrounds, but the ministers did not reach an agreement and it was decided that another meeting would be held tomorrow, and that by then Gamzo would formulate his recommendations.
Health Minister Yuli Edelstein addressed the issue before the meeting, saying: “There is no half-closure, if a closure is decided – there should be a full closure. As long as this is not the case, there is no point in a partial closure.” Deputy Prime Minister and Defense Minister Bnei Gantz and Aryeh Deri demanded at the hearing to impose a full closure on the weekends, or to remove the restrictions completely. Another option that has come up is a full closure from mid-August until the end in order to lower the morbidity rate and allow the education system to start the school year properly.
