According to the DPA, several lawmakers have been placed in quarantine in recent weeks after coming into contact with infected people. Israeli media reported on Sunday that nine others had to go into quarantine after contacting a reporter who later tested positive for the coronavirus.
A parliamentary spokesperson said most of the work in the legislature would be done through online platforms, but details were still being discussed.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett warned Israelis to be prepared for the next “fifth wave” of the pandemic. We also see an increase in the number of primaries. “It has started,” Bennett said at a government meeting on Sunday.
“All citizens must take care of themselves, their families and their children…the wave has come,” he said, urging those reluctant to get coronavirus vaccines to do so immediately.
According to the DPA, 59 percent of 9.4 million Israelis are considered fully vaccinated, meaning they received three doses or within six months of the second dose. According to the Health Ministry, 32 percent of Israelis are not vaccinated at all.
In Israel, 175 cases of omicron have been confirmed so far. In addition, there are 380 suspected cases.
