Netanyahu: Cough into a tissue; you don’t need masks

Netanyahu says Israel is in good shape to deal with the coronavirus crisis, when compared to many other countries, having closed its “outer envelope” by requiring self-quarantine for all arrivals from abroad.

He asks Israelis to change their day-to-day routine.

“We like to hug, shake hands, kiss — don’t do it,” he says.

“Don’t shake hands. Wash your hands. Maintain good personal hygiene,” he urges. “Cough into a tissue… you don’t need masks.”

“We’re in a pandemic — a global plague,” he says.
