Hospital chiefs said unanimous: 3rd virus wave just a matter of time

The Health Ministry holds a meeting with the heads of hospitals around the country on the coronavirus. During the videoconference, according to Channel 12, all of them agree a third surge of infections is coming.

The hospital officials issued the warning to the ministry’s director-general, Chezy Levy, the report says.

They also discussed the vaccination of medical staff, the network says.

The warning comes as Israel surpasses 1,000 virus cases a day, for the first time in a month.
