Public Security Minister Omer Barlev tells fellow ministers that the government needs to decide on a policy response to the current COVID-19 outbreak and stick with it, decrying the frequently changing restrictions.

“We are confusing the public,” he is quoted as saying by Hebrew media during the weekly cabinet meeting. “We need to make a decision and not change it.”

Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz defends the government response to the Omicron variant.

“The guidelines are changing because the reality is changing,” he says, according to Channel 13 news.
