AG Mandelblit: Digital tracking legal, meant to save lives

 Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit stressed on Tuesday that emergency measures implemented by the government to allow the Shin Bet to track those infected with the novel coronavirus are legal and are meant to "save lives during an emergency."
The new measures were checked by Mandelblit's office with continued dialogue with Health Ministry officials, the political echelon, Israel Police and the Shin Bet in order to ensure that the measures would strike a balance between preserving the health and safety of the public and protecting privacy rights.
