Caution over Covid
The Israeli government announced last week that it was locking down the country for a second time. This should serve as a cautionary tale for all other nations.
At the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Jewish state was looked upon as an exemplar of how a country should deal with the coronavirus, as the rates of infection were very low.
But jump six months later, and the country now has one of the highest rates per capita of coronavirus in the world.
As your paper has emphasised here, due diligence must continually be practised when dealing with the coronavirus.
It does not matter how low that the rates were previously; once the virus takes hold it will start spreading quickly if proper precautions are not taken against it, no matter what the country. PAUL
