At a press conference announcing the easing of coronavirus restrictions at outdoor gatherings, Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz vows that limitations on events at indoor venues will also soon be eased if morbidity further recedes.

Horowitz notes the continued decline in morbidity since the peak of Israel’s fourth major outbreak of COVID-19, which he credits to the rollout of booster shoots.

He cautions against spiking the football, however, saying the ministry is operating on the assumption there will be another significant wave of infections.

“This isn’t a graduation party,” he says.
