Israel on another five days nationwide lockdown

The nationwide lockdown, now is in its fourth week, is Israel’s third since the start of the pandemic. A ban on international commercial air travel will also stay in place through Feb. 7 and the border crossings to Jordan and Egypt will remain shut, according to a statement from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the Health Ministry.

Israel is the world leader in per capita vaccinations, having so far administered the first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine to roughly one-third of the population. But the vaccination drive and the lockdown haven’t managed to significantly slow the spread of the virus.
