Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Minister of Health, the Minister of Public Health, the Commissioner of Police, the Director General of the Ministry of Health, the Corona Projector, the Head of Public Health, the Director General of MDA and the heads of the HMOs in Israel held important public briefings today As part of the effort to prevent a recurrence of the plague and reported further steps to deal with the corona.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: “Last Purim there was a dangerous outbreak that infected the masses and you remember that we had to close the country. It must not be repeated. On this Purim, on the contrary, we are all commanded to keep the rules. We can rejoice, we can dress, but we must keep the rules. This is doubly important because we are really, really on the verge of getting out of the plague.

Following the government’s decision yesterday regarding restrictions on the days of Purim, the government this evening (Wednesday, in a telephone poll) approved the Ministry of Health’s regulations:

1. Decision on night closure. Prohibition on leaving the place of residence from 20:30 to 5:00 the next morning. Except for permitted essential purposes, including leaving for permitted work, or leaving up to 1,000 meters from the place of residence. This prohibition will also apply to those staying in guest houses.

The following are the dates and hours when the closing of the night will take place:

– Thursday, 25.2, between 20:30 and 05:00 in the morning on Friday, 26.2.

– Friday, 26.2, from 20:30 to 05:00 in the morning on Saturday, 27.2.

– Saturday, 27.2, from 20:30 to 05:00 in the morning on Sunday, 28.2.

2. Prohibition of opening businesses during closing hours, except for essential businesses.

3. Prohibition of holding a party during the closing hours (the determination of this prohibition will also allow the imposition of a fine on the holder of a place where a party took place) and a prohibition on staying in another person’s home.

4. The fine for violating the closure or staying at another person’s home is NIS 500.

5. The regulations will not apply to a locality whose majority of residents are not Jews and in the East Jerusalem area.

The Prime Minister said and added: “Today I present a five-step plan for a safe exit from the corona plague. But it’s not something that might happen, it’s happening right now. Before that I want to show you our situation today.

The total number of vaccinated and recovering people in Israel, who have been vaccinated at least once, to whom we want to reach is 6 million and the 200,000 graduates over the age of 16 in the State of Israel.

We are still even at a distance of one million and 200,000 people. We compete in morbidity, we are with a few thousand verified per day. Therefore there is a gap that exists between the number of people who have already been vaccinated and those who have not yet been vaccinated. We must close this gap to reopen our country.

The gap exists for several reasons, the main reason the gap exists is because of Pike News. It is said that the vaccine is unnatural, that it is a foreign body, side effects, it is not tested. Said that about all the previous vaccines in the previous 150 years.

Said it about chickenpox, measles, earth, I want to sharpen something: the virus is the foreign body that attacks the body, the virus is the unnatural thing that attacks the body. Vaccines are the protection, they are a tremendous gift to humanity.

Before the age of vaccines came, the average life expectancy of mankind was between 30-40 years. Vaccines more than anything else – have doubled our life expectancy. I ask you, do not believe Pike News. Go get vaccinated. Vaccines save lives, vaccines prolong life.

We have all seen the terrible tragedy of the late Osnat Ben Sheetrit. A young woman with the joy of life, she had a captivating smile. She was pregnant and died of corona before she could be vaccinated. She left a husband, four orphans and a fetus that did not survive.

Osnat had a relative who led protest groups against vaccines and told her: “Do not get vaccinated.” Today her family leads groups to persuade Israeli citizens to go and get vaccinated.

But still, as I said, there is this gap of about a million adult Israelis who have not been vaccinated even once. This means that many Israeli citizens may still become seriously ill and, God forbid, die.

All over the world, citizens are waiting for vaccines, in the State of Israel, vaccines are waiting for citizens. That must be changed immediately.

Vaccines are not available in New York, Miami, Los Angeles and Europe. Ask your relatives and friends there. They beg to get vaccinated. Consider that adults in other countries wait months to get vaccinated, asking us to bring them vaccines. Here the vaccines are waiting for you and we can get out of the corona together with them safely and securely.

I of course congratulate the millions of Israelis who have already been vaccinated, and I congratulate the medical teams, MDA, the life-saving organizations that have been exceptionally involved in the mission. With their help and with the help of the name we come out of the corona.

Well, these are the five exit stages of the corona:

The first stage is stage zero – it’s Purim, it’s now. We need to get through Purim in peace. The first step is now, at this level that 81% of Israeli citizens are vaccinated, or at least vaccinated once, and that is a green passport.

The second stage, the second week of March, is the opening of a graded education. We have already made an opening of education, we will make another opening of education.

The third stage, a green passport, stage B. Also in the second week of March, as planned.

The fourth stage at the end of March. Our intention is to finish vaccinating the entire adult population over the age of 16.

Stage Five: In April our intention is to reach a full opening.

It obviously depends on the level of morbidity, but if we all do the right thing – we get through it. We are going through this with the help of the responsiveness of the citizens of Israel, with the help of the closed borders, including Ben Gurion Airport, in order to prevent the entry of new mutations, we want our population, as far as possible, to be completely vaccinated.

It also gives us protection against the mutations we know today, but of course there may be new mutations, and with the help of the name, with your help we will pass Purim in peace so that we can celebrate Passover together.

This Passover we are asked again – what has changed tonight? And this time we’ll answer, tonight we’re all vaccinated. I therefore ask all of you to follow the instructions. May we have a happy Purim, still with masks. “
