Health minister: Passover restrictions possible if mass Purim gatherings held

Health Minister Yuli Edelstein warns of possible restrictions over Passover if celebratory gatherings are held during Purim.

“If there are mass violations and infections, than on Passover we’ll all sit at home,” he tells Kan public radio.

Edelstein is also asked about Prime Minister Netanyahu’s decision to give vaccines to other countries in return for diplomatic support. He says only a few thousand doses have been transferred and that none of them were of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine used to inoculate Israelis so far.
