Israel has reinstated strict lock-down measures for three weeks amid a surge in coronavirus cases, said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
“Our goal is to stop the increase (in cases) and lower morbidity,” Netanyahu said in a nationally broadcast statement, according to The Associated Press.
He went on to say, “I know that these steps come at a difficult price for all of us. This is not the holiday we are used to.”
Restaurants, schools and hotels, among other businesses, shut down at the start of the Jewish High Holiday season.
Israelis will also face additional restrictions on movement ahead of the holidays when Israelis typically hold large family gatherings and pack synagogues, the AP reported.
The lockdown comes after Israel lifted restrictions in place with a lengthy shutdown in the spring that is credited with bringing down infection numbers.
Israel just recently set a new record for daily cases, the Health Ministry said with over 3,000 new COVID-19 diagnoses confirmed in one day. The spike came just two days after 2.4 million Israeli children went back to school.
Israeli Ministers in the so-called coronavirus cabinet were presented with research indicating Israel’s hospitals could face collapse in two weeks’ time due to the rising number of virus cases.
The Biblical Prophecies (Matthew 24, Luke 21) foretell that pestilence will be a sign of the Last Days indicating the nearing end of this age.
These events and conditions happening now are warning signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare now for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).
