Health Minister Edelstein: ‘We Hope We Won’t Need To Announce A Total Shutdown’

4

Israeli Health Minister Yuli Edelstein said on Monday that he hoped the new COVID-19-related restrictions approved by the government earlier in the day would be sufficient to prevent the need for a total lockdown.

“Coronavirus in the country needs to be fought with help from its citizens and in collaboration with the government,” said Edelstein. “We hope that in two weeks we will not need to announce a total shutdown,” he added.

Edelstein announced that he would be appointing a special manager to oversee all government actions related to the pandemic, and that the ministry would increase epidemiological testing.

The health minister also announced the implementation of a computer system that used artificial intelligence software to help track and contain the pandemic.

There are currently 12,799 active COVID-19 cases in Israel, 89 of them serious. Thirty-five people are on respirators, and 338 have died of the disease so far.

Meanwhile, a group of more than 200 scientists has called for the World Health Organization (WHO) and others to acknowledge that the virus that causes COVID-19 can spread through the air—a change that could alter some of the current measures being taken to stop the pandemic, the AP reported on Monday.

While the WHO has long maintained that COVID-19 is spread via larger respiratory droplets, most often when people cough or sneeze, it had previously dismissed the possibility of airborne transmission, said the report.

  1. Why don't you tell them the truth what coronavirus is and what happened all of a sudden that the politicians are going haywire?

    Why do politicians keep lying and lying? No fear of Heaven, Mr. Edelstein and Bibi? WHOM ARE YOU FOOLING WITH THIS NONSENSICAL SHUTDOWN OR TOTAL SHUTDOWN? Do you think that Israelis can be fooled that the shutdown will totally eliminate the coroney baloney symptoms of fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting and diarrhea?

  2. I have a bridge to sell for anyone who believes any of this drivel.
    There’s good reason why Trump pulled out of the WHO and stopped funding this Deep State organization. But Israel is still going along with their nonsense.

  3. Look how we allow ourselves be led like sheep to the slaughter for over half a year with politicians out to kill us with dangerous masks which has already brought many smothered to the emergency room (then adding these patients to fit their narrative), and shutting down cities with some bogus pretext of CV19. They somehow remind us of the upper echelon mafiosos before WWII.

  4. Flood the country with the medication Hydroxychlorophin, to be taken with zinc, within the first 5 days of symptoms and almost no one will need hospitalization. Doctors are using it worldwide with almost 100% success, no side effects.
    FDA approval for over 65 years.
