Netanyahu and Litzman to give statement on coronavirus

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Health Minister Yaakov Litzman will give a joint statement to the press following a previously scheduled announcement by the Heath Ministry at 7 p.m, the premier’s office announces.

National Security Adviser Meir Ben Shabbat will also join the press conference, along with Health Ministry director Moshe Bar Siman-Tov, who had already been scheduled to give a statement.

The presence of the higher level figures ups the likelihood for a dramatic decision or announcement, likely regarding restrictions on travelers coming from the US, according to pundits.
