As Gaza Rockets Subside, Southern Israeli Community on Verge of Lockdown Amid COVID-19 Case Spike

Kfar Gaza, a community located just a few kilometres from the Gaza Strip, has seen emergency situations before but the outbreak of COVID-19 is now presenting new challenges, the primary one being a full lockdown, set to be imposed on Monday.

Only a month ago Kfar Gaza, a southern Israeli community located just five kilometres from the Gaza Strip, was associated with rockets emanating from the enclave and the resilience of its residents who chose to stay in the area despite the constant threat of terror.

Now, however, with the coronavirus raging and the town declared a red-zone, meaning the number of infections there has reached alarming levels, the tiny southern community is on the verge of a full lockdown starting Monday.
