Netanyahu says thousands may be sick within weeks

Prime Minister Netanyahu warned that if there was no improvement in the outlook on the spread of the coronavirus in Israel, a complete lockdown would be imposed. He said the virus did not discern between the religious and secular, or Arabs and Jews.

"These are laws of life and death; do not leave your home," Netanyahu said. He warned that within two weeks, there could be thousands of patients in serious condition if people failed to comply with the instructions.
