    The Health Ministry on Wednesday morning asked residents of the Arab village Deir al-Asad, in the Galilee region, to remain in their homes due to an "unusually high rate" of coronavirus spread in the community.
    The residents of the neighboring villages of Majd al-Krum, Bi'ina and Nahf were also asked to stay indoors.
    As of Wednesday morning, there are 23 confirmed cases in Deir al-Asad, four in Nahf, three in Bi'ina and one in Majd al-Krum. Deir al-Asad has a population of over 12,000 people.
