Israel: The epidemic curve continues to rise, re-imposing masks in indoor places

The outbreaks originate from a "green" country - Cyprus

Jerusalem24 – Fears are increasing in Israel of a resurgence of the Corona virus disease, in light of the rise in the epidemiological curve of the disease during the past days. According to the figures of the Israeli Ministry of Health, more than 125 new infections with the Corona virus were recorded during the past 24 hours.

The Israeli Public Radio also reported that 40% of the positive cases infected with the new strain of the Corona virus are for people who have received the vaccination. Yesterday evening, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett announced the restructuring of the Cabinet for the Corona Virus (Corona Cabinet), and recommended the wearing of protective masks in closed places in conjunction with its imposition at Ben Gurion Airport, stressing the need for all returnees from abroad to undergo PCR examinations.

Bennett’s statements came at a press conference held at Ben Gurion Airport, following a tour he conducted, in the wake of the outbreak of the Indian boom among returnees from abroad and the decline in the ability to conduct “Corona” tests at the airport. Bennett made it clear that his government intends to treat the increase in infection rates as a new wave of the epidemic. He recommended wearing masks indoors; He demanded to refrain from “traveling abroad” at the present time, noting that “the outbreaks in (Benjamina) originate from a green country – Cyprus.”

Bennett stressed the need to refrain from traveling abroad, warning of the renewed spread of the virus on a large scale and of a gradual return to imposing restrictions.
