Amid a rise in COVID cases and fears over the ultra-contagious Delta variant, the Health Ministry is reportedly considering bringing back the “green pass” system that differentiates between vaccinated and non-vaccinated citizens.

The plan, which was lifted on June 1, allowed only those vaccinated to dine indoors at restaurants and attend most cultural events. A source in the ministry tells Haaretz that if further restrictions are not imposed, there could be 600 new cases per day by next week.
