Coroanvirus czar Salman Zarka said on Thursday that although there was no gain to Israel's public health by instating more restrictions during the Omicron variant wave, he could not say definitely that the Health Ministry would not recommend a lockdown at some point in the future because of the over burdened state of hospitals caused by the coronavirus and seasonal illnesses.
Zarka spoke at a daily press briefing as daily infection rates of COVID-19 continue to rise.
