Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has announced that his government is imposing a second national-wide COVID-19 lockdown.
The lockdown will come into effect at 2pm (local time) on Friday – coinciding with a major Jewish holiday, Rosh Hashana, and will continue for three weeks.
“I know these steps are a heavy price for us all,” Mr Netanyahu said. “These are not the holidays we are used to. We certainly won’t be able to celebrate with our extended families.”
Israel currently has over 37,000 active COVID-19 cases, while the opposition to Netanyahu claims that he has been using the crisis to secure his political power.
“If we keep the rules, and I am confident in this, we will defeat the virus. I see the vaccine on the way, and I see the fast testing that is on the way,” the prime minister said.
The decision comes as the World Health Organization continues promoting the COVID-19 as a major global threat setting conditions for speculatinos about a possible new wave of lockdowns.
Meanwhile, the United Nations finally revealed who is really responsible for the COVID-19 crisis:
The #COVID19 pandemic is demonstrating what we all know: millennia of patriarchy have resulted in a male-dominated world with a male-dominated culture which damages everyone – women, men, girls & boys.
