The coronavirus cabinet will meet for the first time in a month on Sunday, and Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz is expected not to ask for tighter restrictions – despite recommendations by others in the ministry to limit large gatherings and events.

The planned meeting comes amid a public spat between Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Health Ministry officials. The prime minister criticized Health Ministry experts during his trip to New York to address the UN General Assembly, including in the speech itself. On Thursday, Bennett and Horowitz met with the country's top health officials to alleviate tensions.
