Covid-10 infection hitting 459 a day, three towns under partial lockdown
The government Tuesday ordered districts of Tiberias and Elad to be partially locked down to contain coronavirus outbreaks. Bat Yam next door to Tel Aviv has proved difficult to shut down since infection through rife is scattered across the city. The mayor is demanding that the town’s seafront be placed off-limits as a major source of infection. Health authorities are alarmed by the spread of the new outbreak of the virus across the country, unlike the first. The 459 new cases reported on Tuesday have cropped up in some 300 towns and villages.
