Israelis are now preparing for their second lockdown since the pandemic began, but the decision is proving to be controversial.
Cases in the country, which has a population of just nine million, have risen to around 4,000 per day, according to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The new measures come into effect on Friday and will last for three weeks.
One minister has resigned over the new lockdown, which will overlap with key Jewish festivals.
