Top health official: New restrictions being considered to curb rising infections

With coronavirus infections increasing, the director-general of the Health Ministry says officials are weighing new restrictions to curb the rise.

Among the measures being discussed are nightly curfews and stricter enforcement of the quarantine for Israelis returning from countries with high infection rates, Chezy Levy says during a press briefing.

He also urges Israelis not to be “complacent” amid signs vaccines could begin arriving soon, calling for continued adherence to Health Ministry guidelines for reducing the spread of COVID-19.
