The government announced Monday that the Coronavirus Cabinet will convene on Tuesday to discuss the current rise in COVID cases.

Israel has seen a recent rise in COVID cases, with over 2,114 people testing positive on Sunday. In addition, over 45,000 citizens have already received a booster shot following the government decision to vaccinate citizens over 60 with a third jab.

“The situation is worrisome,” the Health Ministry’s Director-General Prof. Nachman Ash said in a statement.
