Health Ministry plans for ‘next stage’ of COVID-19 outbreak in Israel

Galei Tzahal [Army Radio] reporter Meir Marciano reports the Health Ministry’s emergency plan for the “NEXT STAGE” of coronavirus outbreak in Israel includes closing areas with high infection potential, proactively closing schools, establishing designated departments in all hospitals to deal with the virus.

Also, health funds will operate “Corona Clinics” in communities.

Mass hospitalization complexes will be set up if necessary, and patients in mild condition will be isolated at home, assuming hospitals cannot accommodate everyone.

Restrictions on external visits to nursing homes will also be imposed as they are considered to be a high-risk population.
