Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday that authorities may need to reintroduce restrictions due to the increasing number of coronavirus cases in recent days.

“It could be that we are already within this ten-day period to double the rate. I hope not,” he said, referring to the limit set by his government that new restrictions would apply if the number of cases would double in ten days. According to the Israeli newspaper “Yedioth Ahronoth”.

He defended the gradual reopening process and said that some locations will remain closed as “it has been decided to apply the handbrake.” “We have stopped de-escalation. We will look into it next week,” he argued.
