ISRAEL:

Thousands take to streets, gov’t flip-flops on coronavirus restrictions

Status of restaurants and schools unclear · Death toll rises to 400

Thousands of Israelis took to the streets across the country Saturday night to protest the latest coronavirus restrictions and the government’s management of the crisis. As the number of sick people continues to shoot up, the government’s flip flopping has left the public frustrated and confused.
There were 1,595 people diagnosed with coronavirus on Friday – a high number for the weekend, when many fewer tests are taken. Between midnight and press time on Saturday, 1,163 people tested positive.

A lot of people all over, protest the crackdowns. And per story, management of crisis.

The story said protesters pepper-sprayed some officers, that’s pretty bad.

Good to know (but not really) that the U.S. government is not the only one to have mismanaged this crisis.
