Finance, health ministers fail to reach agreement on reopening of shops

A meeting between Finance Minister Israel Katz and Health Minister Yuli Edelstein ends without an agreement on allowing shops to reopen, according to Hebrew media reports.

Katz is pushing for stores to be allowed to reopen next week, but Edelstein opposes doing so at this stage.

The so-called coronavirus cabinet is expected to make a decision on the matter when it convenes tomorrow morning.
