Ronni Gamzu announces he is stepping down as head of Tel Aviv’s Ichilov hospital after seven years.

In a statement, Gamzu says his move is meant to allow new leadership to help the hospital face the challenges of the future.

However, the Ynet news site says Gamzu is mulling a run for Tel Aviv mayor.

Gamzu came to nationwide prominence after he was appointed coronavirus czar and became the public face of the government’s efforts to beat back the pandemic during its first year.
