Official reportedly warns lockdown possible for Rosh Hashanah holiday

An official who was present at the meeting of the coronavirus cabinet last night warns that if the public is not careful, Israel will enter a lockdown on Rosh Hashanah, Channel 12 news reports.

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said earlier today that Israel can overcome the current resurgence of the coronavirus Delta variant without introducing more lockdowns, but warned closures could eventually be reimposed as a last resort if Israelis don’t heed the health rules.
