Host Simon Spungin is joined by Haaretz's diplomatic correspondent Noa Landau, to discuss Israel's latest relaxation of the virus lock down measures.

We also discuss the secretive role that the Shin Bet is being asked to play in tracking citizens who may have been exposed to the virus - thanks to legislation that is being rubber-stamped by a Knesset that remains obedient to Netanyahu.
