"Stay in the houses, it's your health"
Remember, yesterday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the planned steps, urging Israeli citizens to obey the instructions and not violate the closure and curfew during Passover. "Citizens of Israel are destined for the world and the State of Israel for a week. It is imperative that in the fight against these corona these days will determine the direction - progress or retreat, and for many people living or dying. This epidemic raises victims worldwide, of all peoples, shocking economies in many countries. The situation is better - thanks to the systematic steps we are taking, which certainly means improvement, but anyone who thinks that the crisis can end in wastefulness is a bitter mistake.
"When it comes to your health and your life, the citizens of Israel, there must be no shortcuts. We saw what happened a month ago on Purim events. The spread spread in wide circles, Passover will not be fruitful. Every family will go to Seder alone. Celebrate only with the family you are at home."
"I know there is great heaviness here, but there is simply no choice. We will enforce the closure with determination, and I ask you to enforce the guidelines, for your sake, for your loved ones, for our dear soldiers and police officers and police - who, along with the medical teams that do holy work," said Netanyahu.
Prime Minister Olmert further addressed the possibility of relief after the Passover, saying: "Along with the hardening of the guidelines - I am happy to tell you that there are positive signs on the horizon. But please - do not get complacent. We must not. We are preparing for the crisis exit scenarios. But there is a realistic possibility If the positive trends in Israel continue, we will gradually exit from the closure of Passover and Mimouna, and it is up to you first and foremost.
"Exit will be done according to population risk levels. Those who are at the greatest risk came out last, they will remain in solitary confinement. The exodus will breathe life into the economy, hope for self-employed and employees alike. The big and small businesses groan. As soon as we begin to increase activity in the economy everything is going to change," he concluded. His words.
