Netanyahu: We are in danger of halting return from lockdown

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tells his cabinet that Israel may halt moves to ease the nationwide lockdown and may even put more restrictions in place, as the nation continues to see virus numbers on the rise.

Netanyahu says Israel is better placed than other developed countries experiencing a second wave now, but “I’m telling you straight, we are in danger if we do not act immediately.”

“If there is a need, we will stop the easing and even tighten those that have already been made,” he says, urging citizens to stick to social distancing and mask-wearing rules.
