Health Minister Yuli Edelstein warns current lockdown is ‘a swiss cheese’

Health Minister Yuli Edelstein warns that the current lockdown is “a swiss cheese” — i.e. full of holes.

“This situation worries us very much,” he says. He alludes to various coalition partners of Likud who opposed tighter restrictions.

Edelstein says the closure is unlikely to achieve significant results in its current form within two weeks.

He joins comments by his ministry’s director-general who says he does not expect significant results within two weeks and expects the lockdown will need to be extended.
