Sources in the Ministry of Health They say, “ We make the same mistakes over and over again as we did in the past. We haven't learned anything. The Prime Minister and Minister of Health have already realized the seriousness of the problem, but no one has the courage to announce the closure of Ben Gurion Airport for a week before we know better how to deal with the problem.
