So far, 9,006 Israelis have tested positive for coronavirus, where 59 deaths were confirmed in the Israeli occupation.
Laboratory material shortages are forcing the Israeli occupation to reduce testing, but it says it's planning on producing materials locally. The government has called upon citizens to wear face masks in public to better protect themselves and others from the virus, according to Haaretz.
The ultra-Orthodox city of Bnei Brak, which has become a hotspot for the spread of the virus, has been put on lockdown. A general closure is in effect as of Tuesday, and a curfew as of Wednesday.
