Coronavirus: Israel to impose three-week national lockdown

Israel is to impose a new national lockdown - becoming the first country in the world to take such a measure to contain the spread of coronavirus.

It will begin on Friday and last three weeks, including Jewish new year.


Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the measures would "exact a heavy price on us all", but the country faced a surge with 4,000 new daily infections.


A minister has resigned to protest against the restrictions that overlap with important Jewish festivals.

Housing Minister Yaakov Litzman, who leads an ultra-Orthodox Jewish party, said the measures would prevent Jewish people from celebrating their religious festivals, including Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish calendar, on 27 September.

He also threatened to pull his party out of the governing coalition.

The country has seen 1,108 deaths from Covid-19 and more than 153,000 confirmed infections, according to a global tally kept by US university Johns Hopkins.

What are the new restrictions?
Israel, which has a population of about nine million, has reported more than 3,000 new cases a day in recent weeks.

The measures he announced will be the most extensive imposed in Israel since the first lockdown, which ran from late March until early May, and include:

No more than 10 people can meet indoors while groups of 20 are allowed outdoors
Schools and shopping centres will close, and Israelis must stay within 500 metres of their homes with the exception of travelling to workplaces
Non-governmental offices and businesses can stay open but must not accept customers
However supermarkets and pharmacies can remain open to the public.


Mr Netanyahu acknowledged the disruption the lockdown would cause to Jewish communities celebrating religious holidays that normally see families come together.

"This is not the kind of holiday we are used to. And we certainly won't be able to celebrate with our extended families," he said.

The restrictions on indoor gatherings will severely impact prayers in synagogues.

The second lockdown will cost the economy, which is in recession due to the pandemic, an estimated 6.5bn shekels ($1.88bn), the finance ministry says.

Whoa! I just hope it doesn't come down to overwhelming their health system, 'cause 4000 new cases daily with a population of 9 million is really high!

This is what happens when you open schools prematurely.

The second wave of the outbreak started when school children returned to school, contracted the virus and went back home to spread it.

With this development, this government would see reasons not to open schools in Nigeria till 2021 even though it did not happened in Nigeria. Not because they want us to stay alive, but because they don't love education!

Callous.
Inconsiderate.
Unnecessary.
A minister has already quit in protest.
Why put people through that again.
The thought of going into another lockdown is enough to freak most people at this point.

Over 150k cases with just about 1k deaths. They are doing better than Nigeria. It's not about the number of cases, rather it's the number of deaths that matters more.
