Israel will become world’s only developed country to impose Lockdown again after reopening of the economy. This comes into effect following a surge of COVID-19 cases in the country.
A two-week long lockdown, with complete restrictions in Israel has been approved. If the situation improves, limitations will be applied only to communities with large outbreaks. In other words, ‘containment zones’ as in India’s way.
The Israel Government took this extraordinary step after watching daily cases rise from five (5) in late May to more than 4,000 this week.
In other side, India is dramatically reopening the economy, knowing the hardcore affect of shuting it down for a long period. The huge GDP fall out, and if again restricted to lockdowns, it might lead India to a serious ‘tough-time’.
India is reporting about 90,000+ new COVID-19 cases daily in the recent days, and is about to surpass the mark of 50-lakh COVID-19 cases. As such, will India too follow the path of developed Israel, or will the combat the virus along with the economy fall-out, remains the question.
