Finance Minister Avigdor Liberman comes out against the imposition of further coronavirus restrictions.

“When we look at the morbidity situation, there is a stabilization in the figures and there is reason for optimism,” Liberman says during a briefing to reporters. “We need to stop talking about new restrictions and let the economy work.”

The Treasury chief also pushes back against calls by business owners for compensation.

“Go to Superland and restaurants — everything is full,” he says, referring to an amusement park in Rishon Lezion.
