Shasha-Biton: Anyone advocating a different approach is branded a COVID denier

Education Minister Yifat Shasha-Biton releases a statement against what she calls an “unprecedented campaign” against her, as she wrangles with the Health Ministry over her plan for reopening schools.

“The public needs to be bothered by the fact that anyone who presents a difference approach to the fight against coronavirus is immediately tagged as a coronavirus denier,” she says in a statement. “We’ve reached an absurd situation. All health problems in the State of Israel disappeared and the only thing to deal with is vaccinating children during school hours in September!”
