MDA Director General Eli Bin: “As the national rescue organization, and as the one who is at the forefront of the fight to prevent the spread of the corona virus in Israel, MDA is prepared  to every mission at the request of the Ministry of Health and the HMOs. We did so successfully and effectively since the outbreak of the Corona virus in Israel about 3 months ago  and will do that again this time ”
