Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke Monday afternoon at the weekly Cabinet meeting that the Coronavirus Cabinet will meet tomorrow to discuss the possibility of tightening the restrictions during the current lockdown.

''Anyone who underestimated the restrictions we imposed, anyone who diluted the decisions or overturned them - should not come to us with complaints about how the morbidity is rising. In Europe more countries are also making closures, also in New Zealand and Australia they have made closures and it has proven itself.

"We will convene the Coronavirus Cabinet tomorrow to determine what steps we need to take," Netanyahu announced.

''Since we made the decision there has been a steep rise in critically ill patients. "Tomorrow we will consider the measures," Netanyahu said, noting that "ministers who do not belong to this cabinet can forward their proposals to the National Security Council. At the same time, the meeting today is to transfer more financial assistance, to help the unemployed and businesses. Tomorrow we will also have to discuss the preparation of the hospitals."

Defense Minister Benny Gantz said, "I would like to emphasize the essential need to approve the plan for 2021, we are putting more band-aids and more band-aids. The morbidity is growing. We are also increasing researchers, assistance to citizens and hotels. I also launched a field hospital. Tonight I will go to Washington to deal with security issues."

Today, Gantz instructed to begin staff work required to establish a field hospital that would contain about 200 beds on the basis of allocating IDF doctors, nurses, and paramedics.
