State Comptroller Matanyahu Englman said Monday that he will probe the government’s management of the current COVID-19 crisis and its decision-making during the current and previous waves of infections.

During a tour of Galilee Medical Center in Nahariya, Englman said that he intends to check whether lessons have been learned from mistakes he found in the management of earlier COVID-19 outbreaks, under the previous government.

He said that his office will inspect the decision-making process, the testing apparatus, the vaccination drive and purchases, and other issues.
