The director of the Israeli Infectious Disease Association, Miri Weinberger, has warned the Israeli government that Israel “will lose control of the coronavirus pandemic” and “we are approaching the point where there will be no return, where there is.” massive infections will result in “many seriously ill patients. “
To this end, on the recommendation of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli Council of Ministers is considering the possibility of restricting public meetings to a maximum of 19 people due to the steady increase in infections in the country.
The upward trend appears to have ended this Sunday, with 397 new cases compared to the 600 cases the country has experienced over the past few days. However, the Israeli government does not want to be disappointed with the high infection rate of around 4 percent. with absolutely exceptional cases such as that in the city of Beit She’an in the north of the country, where the proportion of those affected has increased by 163 percent in the past few days.
Netanyahu has invited its ministers to a new meeting next Monday after the disagreement this Sunday, as many ministers have expressed their refusal to return to the restrictions.
