Coronavirus czar Ronni Gamzu on Tuesday urged Health Minister Yuli Edelstein and Education Minister Yoav Galant to shut schools as of Wednesday despite a cabinet decision to keep them open until the end of the week.
Gamzu said the government's decision was made despite health official's recommendations and was a mistake.
"We are convinced the rise in morbidity especially among the general public is caused by rampant contagion in school aged children, primarily aged 10 and up," he said.
