In reversal, Health Ministry won’t conduct COVID-19 testing at supermarkets

The Health Ministry has decided against conducting random coronavirus tests at supermarket chains, according to reports.

The pilot program was called off over fears that Israelis seeking a COVID-19 test would flock en masse to the stores, Channel 12 says.

The TV network also quotes senior health officials as saying they were not informed about the project.
