Government to Rule on Night Curfew Today
Tue, Feb 23 2021, 10:00 AM

Tonight (Tue), the government will convene to discuss the Ministry of Health's recommended night curfew for Purim and the resumption of the full education system in green and yellow cities.


At this stage it appears that the government will approve the MoH's proposal to impose a night curfew on Purim, that will start every evening at 8:00pm and end at 05:00am the next morning (on Thursday, Friday, and Motzei Shabbat).


After a continuous decline, in the last two days the infection coefficient has risen and today (Tue) it climbed to 0.86, from 0.79 yesterday. This increase raises concerns, especially when considering the upcoming Purim holiday, which lead to mass breakouts of the virus last year.


According to the data published in the daily report of the Corona Information and Knowledge Center, the infection rate yesterday was 7%, higher than the weekly average (6.5%). 4,677 new cases were confirmed as positive for Corona out of about 69,000 tests. 77% of new cases are younger than 39, and only 6.2% are older than 60.


According to an AMAN report, despite the change in the age mix of patients, it seems that the widespread infection and the fact that a significant part of the population has not yet been vaccinated may not slow down the infection rate as quickly as they'd like. They warned that in the coming weeks there may be a re-increase in morbidity, due to the British variant, which seems to be very dominant in Israel. Therefore, more than ever, personal responsibility and adherence to the guidelines is required, especially in light of Purim, beginning this week.
