The ministerial committee, which overlooks the Shin Bet activity, approved on Wednesday the 21-day extension to the practice of phone tracking of confirmed coronavirus carriers.
Ministers were unanimous about the effectiveness and necessity of the Shin Bet's tools in locating patients and cutting off the chain of infection.
Intelligence Minister Eli Cohen said during the vote that existing civilian tools should be improved in order to replace the Shin Bet's technology, once the daily coronavirus tally drops below 200.
