„Wir haben etwa vor zwei Wochen die Kliniken aufgefordert, planbare Operationen zu verschieben und das führt, Stand heute Abend, dazu, dass fast die Hälfte der Intensivbetten in Deutschland frei ist. Das heißt also, wir bereiten uns bestmöglich vor auf das, was da kommen kann.

Und wenn ich anfügen darf: Damit sind fast doppelt so viele Betten in Deutschland in der Intensivmedizin frei wie Italien insgesamt überhaupt hat.

Gantz Backs Off of Unity With Netanyahu, Eyes Control of Parliament Instead

While last week Gantz agreed in principle to join a unity government with Likud that would be headed by Netanyahu for a limited period until Gantz replaced him, he has pulled back following criticism from supporters.

“First, we will get Israeli democracy back to working – and later we will form a government that will deal with the coronavirus and the other challenges that are on the line,” Gantz wrote on Facebook on Tuesday. “We must not let the coronavirus crisis, which requires thorough attention – medical, social and economic – trample over Israeli democracy. Not on my watch.”

Ravid and Yavin are among a growing number of Israeli Jews, longtime supporters of Zionist parties such as Labor and Meretz, who plan to break rank and, for the first time in their lives, vote for an Arab or mainly Arab list in the next election. In the past, Arab parties could count on Jewish voters to hand them the equivalent of a single Knesset seat. According to various internal polls that were shared with Haaretz, on March 2 the Joint List could win as many as two seats thanks to disillusioned and angry left-wing Jewish voters.

Mr. Sanders has gained six points since the last Times-Siena survey, in late October, and is now capturing 25 percent of the vote in Iowa. Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Ind., and former Vice President Joseph R.
