IDF Home Front Command chief says Israel needs ‘coping strategy, not exit strategy’

The head of the military’s Home Front Command dismisses the growing talk of an “exit strategy” for the coronavirus pandemic, saying instead the military was preparing a “coping strategy” for continuing to manage outbreaks of the disease for many months to come.

“We need to talk about a coping strategy, not an exit strategy,” says Maj. Gen. Tamir Yadai, whose Home Front Command has been heavily involved in the national response to the crisis.

Yadai says he expects the country to continue dealing with the coronavirus well into next year “with ups and downs.”

However, the general says he believes the country should begin working to allow people to resume some kind of normal routine during this period.
