Transportation minister attends lockdown-violating office party

14 3 3

Transportation Minister Miri Regev was photographed at an office birthday party in her ministry on Tuesday with over a dozen employees, in clear violation of the national lockdown imposed to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

Regev’s office later explained that the minister was only briefly at the event and that she had told the workers to obey the restrictions.

In the photo, which was shared on social media by reporter Israel Frey of the DemocratTV media network, Regev was shown sitting at a food-laden table crowded with 12 other people as they celebrated the birthday. The lockdown, which Regev herself voted to apply, limits indoor gatherings to just five people.

Those in the photo were not maintaining social distancing orders by keeping two meters between them, and none — including Regev — had a face mask on.
