'I don't know what prime minister meant': Israel's virus czar shoots down Netanyahu's suggestion country is through pandemic
Israeli coronavirus response chief, Nachman Ash, doesn't share PM Benjamin Netanyahu's optimism regarding the Covid situation in the country, warning that it could well go into a fourth lockdown due to a rising transmission rate.
Israel is "the first country in the world to emerge from corona," Netanyahu insisted in an interview with Fox News on Thursday. "Look, I don't think we're coming out completely. We're going to have to wear a mask for some time. But we're behind it."
When asked on Friday to comment on Netanyahu's remarks, Ash responded: "I don't know what the prime minister meant."
Israel has been gradually easing its coronavirus restrictions amid a massive vaccination campaign, which has seen more than 3.5 million people receiving both doses of the Pfizer jab. The reopening of restaurants, cafes, event venues and hotels is scheduled for Sunday, but some activities will only be available to those who have been immunized and obtained a so-called 'Green Pass.'
"We are concerned about the increase in infection in the coming days," the coronavirus czar told 103FM Radio.
