Update on the situation in Israel
  • The Israeli media report 1,107 confirmed new coronavirus cases in the last 24 hours bringing the number of people ill with the virus to 9,618. This is the first time new cases have exceeded 1,000 in a 24 hour period. 325 people have died from coronavirus since the outbreak, nine in the last 24 hours. There are 70 people hospitalised in serious condition of which 27 are on ventilators. Testing has also increased to a record-breaking 24,000 on Thursday with a 4.5 per cent rate of confirmed cases detected. Last night Prime Minister Netanyahu reintroduced restrictions on public gatherings, including a limit of up to 20 people gathering in closed spaces and a limit of 50 people at bars, clubs, event halls, and synagogues.
  • Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) signed a historic collaboration agreement with Group 42 from Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. The companies will collaborate in the fields of research and development in an effort to find solutions to the coronavirus. The cooperation agreement was signed during a video call between the UAE and Israel, during which ways to leverage common innovative technologies in the fields of artificial intelligence, sensing, laser, and more were discussed.
  • Yediot Ahronot includes a poll asking if the Knesset elections were held today which party would you vote for? The Likud is firmly in the lead with 38 seats. This, however, represents a 3-seat drop compared to the previous poll. Yesh Atid-Telem led by Yair Lapid solidifies its position as the second-largest party with 17 seats, while the Joint List led by Ayman Odeh maintains its strength with 15 seats. Blue and White, however, continues to weaken, receiving only 10 seats in the poll. Yamina, led by Naftali Bennett, and Shas, headed by Aryeh Deri, with 9 seats each. United Torah Judaism receives 8 seats in the poll, Avigdor Liberman’s Yisrael Beiteinu 8 seats, and Meretz with 6 seats. Remaining below the electoral threshold is the Labour Party, Orly Levy-Abekasis’s Gesher and the Derech Eretz partnership of Yoaz Hendel and Zvi Hauser.
