Health minister said to ask Netanyahu to quarantine Bnei Brak

Health Minister Yaakov Litzman asked Prime Minister Netanyahu today to impose a quarantine on Bnei Brak amid a rise in COVID-19 cases there, according to Hebrew media reports.

Responding to the reports, Bnei Brak Mayor Avraham Rubinstein calls on the Health Ministry to provide information to the municipality on residents of the Tel Aviv suburb who have the coronavirus and says a full lockdown won’t help those who are sick.
