Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz calls for additional coronavirus restrictions to be approved by the government in an effort to stem rising infection numbers.

“We see a rise in the number of infected people and in the number of serious patients. One can say ‘it’s nothing,’ but what are waiting for? That there be thousands of infected people a day? Hundreds of serious patients?” he tells Channel 13 news.
