The head of the panel of experts advising the Israeli authorities on the corona virus, Eli Waxman, stressed on Wednesday that the pandemic was “stopped” and “under control” in the country.
“A responsible and continued policy of gradually returning to activities as recommended, completing regulatory standards and continuing public cooperation will maintain a low level of cases,” he said.
He also stressed that the committee he led made important contributions to combating the pandemic by avoiding “dangerous and wrong decisions” recommended by other experts, according to the Israeli newspaper “Haaretz”.
Waxman has made it clear that these proposals included early reopening of the economy in search of “herd immunization” and a massive test campaign in the early stages of the pandemic, rather than focusing on symptomatic cases and outbreak areas. .
