Israel's coronavirus czar said Sunday he will recommend that the government does not ease the nationwide lockdown further until more members of the public get tested for coronavirus.
"I have 70,000 daily at my disposal, tests take advantage of them, what do I get stuck with 20,000?" Gamzu said in an interview with Ynet. "I am considering stopping further steps [to ease the lockdown] if there are not enough tests in the State of Israel, if people do not go enough to get tested," he said.
"I want every municipality to know that if they have 20 verified, they should double that number by 100 and conduct 2,000 tests."
