    As of Saturday night, Israel had 18,296 active cases of the virus.
    Israel has seen a dramatic spike in coronavirus cases since the start of June after a gradual easing of lockdown restrictions that had paralyzed the country, leading to a devastating impact on the economy and over a million jobs lost.
    As a result, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government reimposed lockdowns on virus hotspots inside five cities across the country, including Jerusalem, Beit-Shemesh, Lod, Ramla and Kiryat-Malachi.
