New Health Ministry director-general Nachman Ash says he doesn’t believe there will ultimately be another coronavirus lockdown, but that he can’t rule out the possibility.

“Anything can happen, but we don’t want to reach a lockdown situation,” he tells Channel 12 news.

He calls for increased mask-wearing in indoor spaces, after the mandate was reimposed last month.
