Seven people died and 460 people tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 24 hours. 175 people are in critical condition.

All businesses except supermarkets, pharmacies, gas stations and banks remain shut since March 15. 

Tel Aviv also banned the entry of foreign citizens except those with Israeli residency.
