Second coronavirus rate spike?


A spike in coronavirus infections is due to the public not following Health Ministry guidelines, outgoing director-general Moshe Bar Siman Tov said Friday during a special press briefing.

In the last 24 hours, 85 people have been diagnosed with the virus.

Earlier in the day, the ministry sent a special message to the public asking people to uphold three rules: good hygiene, wearing masks and social distancing.
