No Choice But to Lockdown Country If Numbers Don't Improve

TEL AVIV – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Wednesday if there was no improvement in the amount of confirmed coronavirus cases then he would have no choice but to begin a total lockdown.

As of 5pm Wednesday, only essential businesses, including supermarkets and pharmacies, were permitted to remain open.

Netanyahu warned officials on Monday during a seven-hour emergency phone meeting that as many as a million Israelis could become infected with the virus.

“We could reach a million infected within a month,” Netanyahu told ministers according to a report on Israel’s Channel 12.

A total of 1,656 Israelis have been diagnosed with the virus, 30 are in critical condition.
