Prof. Manfred Green from the School of public Health, University of Haifa, said that the measures being taken by Israel won’t stop the spread of the coronavirus but merely slow it down. He stressed the need to help protect medical workers, as well as hospitals and old age homes where people are vulnerable. He also urged anyone with chronic disease to get them “under control.”

He told reporter Arieh O’Sullivan that Israel can expect to see an exponential rise in the number of infected with coronavirus.
