New Coronavirus Restrictions?

With over 700 new cases reported earlier this week, Israel’s coronavirus cabinet is mulling new restrictions. The Delta variant is responsible for Israel’s latest outbreak, infecting even some fully vaccinated people. The Health Ministry is recommending a shorter isolation period for those arriving from abroad (7 days instead of 14) after two negative coronavirus tests. However, it is also expected to recommend limiting indoor gatherings to 100 people, and only for those presenting a negative corona test, proof of recovery, or who have been vaccinated. Just as Israel had almost totally reopened, this variant entered the country, causing us to slow down the reopening. Please continue to pray that Israel will emerge from this grip of the virus. Please also pray for full healing for those who are ill, and for strength for Israeli medical teams treating them. Lastly, please pray for wisdom for Israeli officials as they continue to face difficult decisions regarding slowing the spread of the virus.
