Bennett says steps taken to reduce overcrowding at COVID testing centers

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett says that the government has taken several steps to reduce overcrowding at COVID-19 testing stations.

He says that there are now 130 teams examining the samples, up from 115, meaning that some 5,000 more people can be tested each day.

Bennett adds that some NIS 500,000 ($156,000) have been allocated to local authorities to employ stewards at testing centers, adding that resources are being focused on the most crowded facilities.
