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.
