Health Minister Yuli Edelstein criticized the members of the Knesset on Monday for not serving as a good example to the public regarding coronavirus regulations.

“MKs are walking around here without masks and they call me a ‘nudnik’ when I comment, adding that ‘there’s no coronavirus here,'” Edelstein said from the plenum.

“But when an MK was diagnosed with the coronavirus [Joint List MK Sami Abu Shehadeh], what’s interesting is that those same Knesset members run around doing all types of tests.”

“They skipped the line, called the director of MDA and used every personal connection. I don’t know why…there’s no coronavirus here. But believe me – by the end of the day, they all were tested.”

“Where’s the personal example? If we don’t adhere to regulations, we won’t succeed at keeping the economy open for long.”
