New restrictions on movement came into effect on Wednesday, as Israel continued efforts to contain the spread of coronavirus.  The emergency regulations, approved for seven days, prohibit people from venturing more than 100 meters from their homes for non-essential reasons, and significantly scale back public transit.

Prof. Nadav Davidovitch, Director of the School of Public Health at Ben Gurion University of the Negev, spoke with KAN's Naomi Segal about the aim of the tightened measures.
