Israel's unyielding battle vs the corona virus

Is it already possible to outline the full magnitude of the medical, social and economic upheaval?

Guests Dr Uri Lerner, Scientific Director at MIDA’AT, which is an NGO focusing on promoting public health and health literacy in Israel, and Colonel Reuven Ben-Shalom, a cross-cultural strategist and associate at the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism at IDC Herzliya.
