Health Ministry set to float 25-day lockdown, with limits on movement

The Health Ministry is set to present a plan to ministers to impose a 25-day lockdown, shuttering all schools and commercial activity and barring Israelis from traveling beyond a kilometer from their homes, according to Hebrew media reports.

According to television reports, ministers are split over schools, with some backing keeping schools open in low-infection areas.

The cabinet will soon convene to discuss the plan, which comes as Israel’s virus cases have climbed to over 3,000 a day.
