Ash was asked if the ministry felt frustrated by the dialogue with the ministers, some of whom opposed the Ministry of Health's recommendations, such as Education Minister Yifat Shasha-Bitton.

"[I] mostly look at the numbers with concern, we are used to this discourse that has been all along the way when there is a lack of understanding about the path we are going to go through, which is a pretty clear path," Ash replied.

The lack of understanding, Ash added, is "of one who does not deal with it on a daily basis and does not see ahead how he is going to act."



He admitted that he also refers to some members of the government in these matters.

"Some of the ministers as well. We explain things over and over again that the higher the number of verified, the higher the number of difficult ones."

However, he clarified that the discussion on the indices from which to decide on the policy based on the number of patients is difficult "is a legitimate discussion of how we want Israel's conduct with an open economy and the like."

Asked about the speech by Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, who pointed the finger of blame at non-vaccinated citizens, Ash said that "we need to see more vaccinated because this is the way to deal with this outbreak," stressing that "our job [is] to convince them of the importance of vaccination for themselves. "The face of the disease and as it spreads, the risk increases. In the overall view, the way to deal with the outbreak is that we will be more immunized and we will reach herd immunity."



"The key is advocacy, the risk of being vaccinated to catch or be infected is low, as the percentage of vaccinated increases the disease will fade," Ash explained. "The solution is immunization and the way is publicity."



Regarding the administration of a third dose of vaccines, the Director General of the Ministry of Health said that the decision on the matter may be made before approval by the US Drug Administration (FDA), explaining that it depends on whether the effectiveness of vaccines fades over time ("it is still unclear"). , And for sure the third dose is safe and does not produce any more side effects. "Given these two things I think we will make the decision to give the third dose.

"The FDA relies on experience in the world, so we will have the first experience, and we may have to make a decision before FDA approval."
