Third Lockdown Could be Imposed During Hanukkah
Israel’s government is considering halting the gradual lifting of coronavirus restrictions, with some senior officials now weighing new prohibitions, according to a report Sunday night.
The report cited senior Health Ministry officials who warned that a third nationwide lockdown may be imposed during the upcoming Hanukkah festival, which begins in December.
“The idea that we may need to impose a third lockdown during Hanukkah is not unfounded,” the sources were quoted as saying.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has reportedly asked experts to draw up plans for new restrictions, including nightly curfews which could be imposed across Israel.
Under the current exit strategy, Israel was to have entered the third stage of the gradual reduction of lockdown restrictions next week, with shopping malls and markets reopening, along with studies resuming for students in grades 11 and 12. (INN / VFI News)
