The "Shield of Israel" Plan:
- Turn over responsibility for testing and contact tracing to the IDF.

- Increase testing - 60,000 daily in two months, 100,000 in the winter.

- Be in direct contact with hospitals to ensure they are not over capacity.
- Establish a professional forum of experts to assist and advise on the plan.
- Improve enforcement.
- Communicate clearly with the public.
- Provide incentives to “green cities” and place restrictions on “red zones.”
