The conference, hosted by Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, focused on steps taken by participating countries to return to a safe routine in the shadow of the coronavirus.
(May 27, 2020 / JNS) Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu participated in a conference call with several world leaders to discuss ways to resume safe flights between their countries and steps to return to a safe routine in the shadow of the coronavirus pandemic.
During the the conference call, hosted by Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, the leaders noted from their countries’ experience that opening schools under social-distancing restrictions had not led to a significant renewal of outbreaks, except for localized ones that have been dealt with on an individual basis.
The leaders also discussed readiness for a possible second wave of COVID-19.
They agreed that the most effective way to prevent spread of the virus was to use digital tools and a system that combines receiving test results in less than 24 hours and epidemiological investigations of infected people that are concluded in less than 48 hours, with the assistance of digital tools.
