Deputy health minister: We’ll recommend reopening commerce only in 2 weeks

Deputy Health Minister Yoav Kisch says the ministry will recommend reopening Israeli commerce only in two weeks’ time.

Kisch tells Channel 12 current morbidity rates do not allow businesses to widely reopen.

The Israel Commerce Forum says in response it has lost faith in government promises. “You promised us 60 days ago that you were closing commerce for two weeks, and we’re still closed. We’re tired of your promises. We will open on Thursday.”
