On Sunday, the Israeli Health Ministry reported that the death toll from the COVID-19 outbreak in the country has climbed to 51. Israeli police and special forces are doing their best to enforce the coronavirus-related quarantine measures in the country, which, in particular stipulate limiting citizens to within a 100-metre radius of their homes. Israeli police spokesman Michael Zingerman said on Monday that since the quarantine regime was tightened last month, they have sanctioned thousands of people over violating the measures. “The sanctions that the police apply are mostly fines which are slapped on those who should be in self-isolation, but who go out, violating the quarantine regime”, Zingerman pointed out, referring to a fine of 5,000 shekels (about $1,300).
