As the world grapples with the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic, countries, states and local governments are beginning to look at how to get life back to normal – or at least as close to our pre-pandemic normal as possible.
In Israel, shops are slowly beginning to reopen as long as patrons can access them directly from the street. Restaurants are now offering to-go orders and meal deliveries. Israelis are experiencing the first phase of their reopening, which is equivalent to the stay-at-home orders seen across the United States.
Other shopping places, like malls and markets, remain closed until the country gets a better grip on the virus.
As of now, Israel has 15,728 active cases, 7,746 people who have recovered and 210 who succumbed to the virus.
Israel has permitted shops with street access to reopen and restaurants to offer takeaway and delivery service options. Malls and markets are still off limits as the efforts to ease coronavirus restrictions went into effect. pic.twitter.com/x4RW4C5XfG— NowThis (@nowthisnews) April 28, 2020
