Deputy Health Minister: Third Closure Will Probably Happen

Israel could be facing a third lockdown as early as Hanukkah, according to Health Ministry director-general Chezy Levy.

“I do not know if there will be a Hanukkah closure,” he said during a briefing on Thursday, noting that the increase in morbidity may lead from a cessation of restrictions to a full-fledged closure. “If there is a sweeping illness like on the eve of Rosh Hashanah, we will have to take broad steps. I can’t say if it will be on Hanukkah, but it could certainly happen if the increase in morbidity continues.”

His words were echoed by Deputy Health Minister Yoav Kisch, who spoke Thursday evening to N12. In his interview, he warned that there is great concern that a third lockdown is on its way. (JPost / VFI News)

“God, we ask that you bless the people of Israel—that you protect and guide them through this difficult time, and that you bring them healing.”
