Covid-19 second lockdown in Israel

Israel is entering a second nationwide lockdown to curb surging coronavirus cases, just as people are beginning to mark the start of Jewish New Year.
Rosh Hashanah is traditionally a time for big, family get-togethers.
But under the new three-week lockdown, Israelis must stay within 1km (0.6 miles) of their homes, with exceptions, and the number of people allowed in synagogues has been greatly reduced.
Israel currently has one of the highest Covid-19 infection rates in the world.
In the past week, new cases have reached daily highs of more than 6,000, and the country’s leaders have apologised for their failure to contain the pandemic.
Watch the report on ABC TV News.

[Editor: In the report by Eric Tlozek on the coronavirus situation in Israel he completely omitted to mention who are in fact the main culprits for the rash of cases that have occurred of late in the country. As this article by an accredited Middle East journalist who speaks Arabic testifies, and from other reports I have gleaned, it is the Arab communities that have been flaunting the rules most of all and are the ones primarily responsible for the large jump in numbers. The ABC reporter did not tell us what is actually going, giving the false impression that the Haredi Jews are the naughty who are disobeying the rules most of all. ]
