Drive-thru virus testing center opens in Wadi Ara

The Health Ministry and Magen David Adom emergency service open a new drive-thru coronavirus testing facility for Arab Israelis.

The testing center opens in Arara, in the Wadi Ara region of northern Israel, after protests by Arab Israeli lawmakers, who accused the Israeli health authorities of failing to provide equal treatment for their community.

According to Channel 12, there have just been 36 cases of the virus confirmed in Arab Israeli cities and towns, raising eyebrows and stoking fears an outbreak is going undetected in these areas.
