Gantz: We may have to impose partial or full lockdown

Defense Minister Benny Gantz warns Israelis the country could be heading to a partial or full lockdown to stem the spread of the coronavirus.

In an interview with the Kan public broadcaster, an excerpt of which was aired in a preview, Gantz says: “I want the public to know that there could be a situation in which we will need to return to a partial lockdown or a full lockdown, or to step up the restrictions.”

He predicts the coronavirus could remain a threat “for a year and a half or even more.”

The full interview will be aired on Kan’s nightly news.
