Cabinet said set to significantly tighten coronavirus restrictions

The cabinet is expected to further restrict Israelis’ movement as part of Israel’s efforts to contain the coronavirus, according to Hebrew media reports.

Israelis will reportedly be barred from leaving their homes unless their job is considered critical or if they are buying food, medicine or other essential goods.

Reports also indicate that only supermarkets and pharmacies will remain open, public transportation will cease completely and that authorities will step up enforcement of emergency ordinances meant to curb the spread of the virus.
