Litzman: Don't Go to Hospital if You Don't Have To


Deputy Health Minister Yaakov Litzman addressed on Monday the overload in Israel’s hospitals due to the many cases of influenza.

"The flu usually comes at the same time and it happens every year," Litzman told Arutz Sheva, adding, “Those who do not have to come to the hospital would probably do well not to come. The hospital is not a place for entertainment."

He added, however, “Whoever needs to go - I do not see a problem with his arrival at the hospital. We’ve added many beds over the last two years and it’s slowly getting better.”
