Report: PM delaying virus debate as he tries to muster majority for his plan

Haaretz says Netanyahu is delaying convening ministers on new coronavirus restrictions because he is still trying to build a majority to support his bid to increase restrictions on the education system, which is currently opposed by Blue and White.

It says Netanyahu wants 7-10 days of tighter limitations, including closing down classroom instruction for grades 5-10 throughout the country. Currently those grades are studying in person in towns with low-to-moderate infection rates.
