Israel will Tighten Coronavirus Restrictions
OREANDA-NEWS. The Israeli government is re-imposing restrictions on participants in public events starting next Wednesday in connection with the spread of the delta coronavirus mutation. These plans were announced by Prime Minister Naftali Bennett at a cabinet meeting on Monday.
"Starting on Wednesday, participation in events, weddings, bar mitzvahs will be allowed for vaccinated, recovered and those who test negative for COVID - and this is mandatory, not a recommendation," said the prime minister, whose words were circulated by his office.
Bennett expressed serious concern about the rapid spread of the delta mutation and called on the million Israelis who have not yet been vaccinated to get vaccinated urgently. According to Bennett, this is necessary in order to start the new school year without interruption, since "education is the main thing that suffered in the past year."
Also, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett decided to prosecute and prosecute coronavirus patients who deliberately violate the regime of self-isolation, the office of the head of government said.
The Prime Minister decided to prosecute and prosecute "persons diagnosed with coronavirus who knowingly violate the conditions of self-isolation and thereby endanger public health."
“Our goal is to establish reasonable principles of control, along with strong and effective suppression of violations. Whoever violates the restrictions endangers his own health and the health of Israeli citizens. We will not allow this,” the Prime Minister said.
In addition, the government decided to streamline the control process, paying particular attention to reducing the time between the imposition of a fine on violators and its actual recovery.
