Health Ministry urges public to adhere to the guidelines as ‘coronavirus not behind us’
Israel’s Health Ministry released Thursday night a warning to the public to “refrain from complacency” as 64 new coronavirus cases were identified in the last 24 hours.
In a statement, the ministry said it is “monitoring the numbers and the varying locations of clusters, while assessing the situation in order to weigh the next steps required to manage the increase of infections.”
There has been a relative anomalous surge in COVID-19 cases in the last two days, in comparison to two weeks prior.
The Jewish state has been gradually restarting its economy and education system, as life across the country has seemingly gone back to normal.
But authorities called on the public to strictly adhere to the guidelines in tact, as “the mood that the coronavirus is behind us — is not correct,” the Health Ministry’s statement read.
The ministry reiterated the importance of adhering to three rules: hygiene, wearing protective facial masks and social distancing at a two meters distance.
