Israel Becomes First Nation To Announce A Second Coronavirus Lockdown

This title of this post, is the same as that of this article on The Times.

Israil had done well to control the first lockdown, but now they have over 4,000 new infections per day.

This paragraph gives some details.

About two thirds of the infections are in the Arab-Israeli and ultra-Orthodox Jewish communities, which together account for almost a third of the 8.8 million-strong population. Experts attribute the levels of infection to both groups’ insistence, despite restrictions, on holding weddings with as many as 1,000 guests, and the resumption of study three weeks ago in the ultra-Orthodox seminaries.

With 4,000 new infections in a population of just under nine million, their rate is much higher than in the UK.
