Prof. Yuval Elbashan, Dean of the Law School at Ono Academic College, in an interview published in Israel’s premier business journal, The Marker, describes how during the current Corona crisis, government services in Israel collapsed on after another. However, he is hopeful that Israel’s legal system has tools to help.
Elbashan described some lesser known aspects of the crisis. “It is not just the restaurant industry that has been hurt. There are entire sectors of the economy like aviation and tourism that absorbed a fatal blow on a worldwide scale. However, almost no one hears about the travel agents, about whom there is doubt if they recover any time soon.”
