Failed government response to COVID-19 pushes Israel to second lockdown

On this week’s episode, foreign news editor of Israel’s Channel 13 Nadav Eyal explains to Ben Caspit how the government failed in dealing with the coronavirus pandemic and why it pushed Israel to become the first western state to impose a second nationwide lockdown. Israel opened up its economy much too early after the first lockdown, with large weddings and mass gathering, Eyal says. “Even in Sweden they do not allow wedding of more than 50 people.”
