Israel on brink of lockdown after dropping facemask rules


Recommended Posts


A stark warning that even with most of it's population fully inoculated except some Orthodox Jews and of course, Palestinians, this shows the risks of lifting lockdown and relaxing rules.


Israel faces the prospect of another lockdown only a month after social distancing and mask rules were dropped, amid a fourth wave of Covid-19.


In recent months, Israel has reopened businesses, schools and event venues, lifting nearly all restrictions after it inoculated some 85 per cent of its adults, as well as reducing the 14-day quarantine period for travellers.


However, despite the country’s advanced vaccination campaign Bennett has called on Israelis to wear masks in closed public places once more and to avoid travel.


“The vaccine is not sufficient to fight against the Delta variant . . . we need the co-operation of citizens to defeat the coronavirus without having to impose a new lockdown,” he said, calling on children aged 12 to 16 to get vaccinated.
