JERUSALEM: Israel was set on Sunday to begin its third coronavirus lockdown, as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu voiced optimism that a “world record” vaccination drive will restore a degree of normality within weeks.
After a sharp rebound in detected infections, Netanyahu’s government announced three days ago that it would re-impose the strict measures that had previously helped limit transmission.
From 5 p.m. (1500 GMT) on Sunday, most people will be forced to stay within 1,000 meters of their home.
