Netanyahu says attention being paid to old age homes

Addressing the country, caretaker Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says that research shows that even those who have recovered from the disease may not be immune, warning that the situation is complicated.

But he also says that Israel is doing much better than most of the rest of the world, adding that some countries took steps too late.

He says that attention is being focused on old age homes, and says the number of those dead in Israel from such facilities is “relatively small, 40 people.”

Nonetheless, he says the issue is being taken care of, as well as the issue of people arriving in the country not being quarantined.
