As part of the precautionary measures against coronavirus, Palestine imposed a full lockdown on the West Bank districts during the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha that started on Friday in Palestine.


The lockdown began on Friday upon an earlier government’s decision and will be valid until Sunday morning. The measures include banning transportation between towns and villages all over the West Bank.

Meanwhile, the Palestinian Ministry of Health said in a press statement that it recorded one death, 394 new COVID-19 infections, and 62 recovered cases in the West Bank during the last 24 hours.

“Since March 5, the ministry recorded 15,232 COVID-19 infections, including 85 deaths, 6,351 cases that recovered, and 8,796 cases still receiving medical care,” said the statement.

The statement added that 14 cases are in critical conditions, including five linked to ventilators at intensive care units.

In Gaza, the Hamas-run Ministry of Health announced that it recorded two new COVID-19 cases on Thursday night, adding that the two infections are of citizens of Gaza who returned in recent days from abroad through Israel.

The ministry said in a press statement that since March 5, it recorded 78 infections, including 71 cases who had recovered in the Gaza Strip.
