Virus czar: Irresponsibly opening commerce, education will lead to new lockdown

Government coronavirus czar Nachman Ash warns the coronavirus cabinet that “irresponsible opening” of the commerce and education sectors “will lead to another lockdown.”

Noting that Israel is seeing some 5,000 new cases a day and 1,000 seriously ill patients, he says: “If someone had told you a month ago that these were the figures we were reopening under, you’d call them crazy, and here we are doing it.”
